Message of Support to Spanish Miners
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,
DWP Group President
