Turn up the Heat on the Tories! Glasgow Right to Work meeting

Right to Work Campaign Open Meeting 

Turn up the Heat on the Tories!

Discussion introduced by Dave Moxham from the STUC plus speakers to be confirmed (details to follow)

Tuesday 26th June @ 7.00pm in the STUC offices, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow - All welcome


The TUC has called a national demonstration in London on Saturday 20th October ‘for a Future that Works’.  This event, called in opposition to the austerity that Governments across Europe are trying to impose on us, could see huge march through central London culminating in a mass rally in Hyde Park. Coming just 2 weeks after the TUC’s march on the Tory Party Annual Conference in Birmingham on Sunday 7th October, it is another excellent initiative.


The Right to Work Campaign is hosting an open meeting at the STUC offices, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow on Tuesday 26th June @ 7pm to discuss how we build these initiatives locally and how they can provide a focus for local activity and opposition to the different attacks we are all facing.


Cameron and Osborne are driving through vicious policies to slash pay, jobs, services, pensions and welfare provision; they are dismantling employment rights and health and safety protection at work; they are slashing education and condemning young people to a grim future; and they are targeting the poor and the vulnerable and scapegoating refugees. But as the recent council elections show, this government is becoming as unpopular as its counterpart in Greece. Over the summer and into autumn we need to turn up the heat on the Condem Coalition.


You are invited to attend the open meeting at the STUC on 26th June. Trade union bodies, campaigns and community groups are encouraged  to send representatives. The STUC meets shortly to decide how it will respond, with the possibility of a Scottish Demonstration being called later in the year. The Right to Work Meeting on the 26th will hear an update from Dave Moxham on this.


Come along and invite your friends and workmates. Take part in the discussion about how we stiffen the resistance here in Scotland and across the UK – and about how we can build links and solidarity with our brothers and sisters fighting back in Greece, Spain and across the globe.


As always there will be time for updates on current activities, local campaigns and strikes.

    I live in Prestonpans (Edinburgh area) and couldn’t go to the Glasgow meeting, but I definitely want to go to the Tory conference demo. Please let me know about transport from Edinburgh as soon as it’s arranged, and book a place for me. (Pass this request on to RtW Edinburgh if that’s the procedure.) Thank you.
