‘The trades unions in the pensions dispute must fight on,’ said CP trade union co-ordinator Anita Halpin today. “After all the government’s “divide and rule” tactics are just a panic response to the success of the N30 actions.

‘The coalition government’s attack on public services has no electoral mandate and only serve the big business agenda to pave the way for radical privatisation and workers need to remain united in the face of this class attack.
 
‘A defeat now would give the green light to the government and the ruling class it represents to go further to divide working women and men.
 
She stressed that ‘all public sector unions need a united strategy, including rolling strikes and targeted indefinite action by key workers across sectors and regions and, most importantly, the development of co-ordinated action with workers in the private sector, so building the broadest defence of public services.’
