•raise public awareness of rights at work and the union role in enforcing those rights.
•promote organising and recruitment drives to build union membership.

Unless the government does an about-turn on its plans to force public sector workers to work longer and pay more for much less pension in retirement, this first joint strike will include 750,000 public servants.There is also a very real prospect of hundreds of thousands more workers joining the dispute later in the year.
