Trade unionists’ austerity demo

Have your say

TRADE unionists in Sheffield are holding a demonstration in support of fellow workers across Europe.

A general strike is being called in European Union countries including Spain, Greece, Portugal, Cyprus and Malta in protest at austerity measures.

The mass day of action is set to take place on November 14.

The same day, Sheffield Trade Union Council is holding a demonstration in support of the European trade unionists outside the Town Hall at 4pm.

A Sheffield Trades Union Council spokesman said: “A European General strike is a real step forward in the battle against cuts and austerity.

“Sheffield TUC is asking members to join fellow trade unionists and students, in support of our brothers and sisters in Europe. Our fight is one fight across Europe.”
