UPDATE: over 400 trade unionists lobby the TUC
Over 400 hundred trade unionists are at lobby of the TUC calling for a 24 hour general. After the 16 all vote on the POA's general strike motion at Thursdays' general council meeting there is a feeling that this could tip the balance. Youth Fight for Jobs and Education members have attended today's march and rally which was addressed by YFJE spokesperson Claire Laker-Mansfield. The rally is also being addressed by TU leaders including Mark Serwotka PCS general secretary, Bob Crow RMT general secretary and Rob Williams NSSN national chair. YFJE fully supports workers taking action against austerity and supports the call for a 24 hour general strike.
