Message of Support to Spanish Miners

20 July

Dear comrades,


I am writing to you to give full solidarity from the PCS DWP group executive which represents 80,000 civil service trade union members who deliver support and benefits to the unemployed and pensioners in the UK. 


Your struggle has been an inspiration to our union and we want to offer full support to you in your battle against austerity. We know full well how important jobs are in mining communities, as our members are still trying to support the unemployed in mining communities destroyed by Thatcher in the 1980s. 


We recognise the attacks on trade unions that the Spanish government wants to make which is also what the British government is planning to do starting with our union PCS in the civil service. 


However it also shows that austerity governments recognise the opposition of the organised working class and the potential for us to defeat them


Our union PCS is fighting all the cuts but also putting forward a real alternative. There is no need to make any cuts if we make the super-rich and big business pay their share. 


Yours in solidarity,


Fran Heathcote

DWP Group President
