October 5th strike: Northern health & education workers lead the fight back!

On October 5th around 8,000 health workers belonging to Unison held a twenty-four hour strike against the Stormont executive’s cuts to health and education services in the name of “austerity”. “Edwin Poots the Boot into Health!” read one banner at a picket in Belfast.

The Unison members are to be commended for beginning to take the sort of action that is needed in order to defeat the attacks on vital services and working people’s living standards.

Hopefully this is just a taste of what is to come on November 30th and beyond.
