Today's Midlands TUC regional council was cut short to enable delegates to take to the streets of Derby to pursue the Pensions Justice campaign which is gaining ground as union ballots produce heavy results in favour of strike action later this month. Some forty trade union and trades council delegates, along with TUC staff, leaflets Derby and took the chance to engage with Saturday shoppers to explain why the industrial action is necessary.
Coverage from Central TV and the Derby Evening Telegraph will help to further promote the message that public sector pensions are affordable without increasing the contribution rate and extending the pension age.
The next day of action will be held on Saturday 19th November with events in many towns and cities across the midlands.
