Details

The Tories plan to introduce a raft of new anti-union legislation.

They see the potential power of the unions to derail their austerity agenda and they want to limit our ability to fight back.

It’s urgent that we debate and organise our response to these attacks.

That’s why Unite the Resistance is holding a London-wide public forum on Thursday 2 July as a part of this debate.

We also want to build solidarity for key ongoing battles and to oppose any attempt to scapegoat migrants and divide us.
