Message of Support from the General Confederation of Labour
MESSAGE OF SUPPORT TO THE BRITISH UNIONS
FOR THE DAY OF ACTION ON NOVEMBER 30, 2011
The CGT (General Confederation of labour) _ Union Mairie de Roubaix (North)
_ and its members bring you the following message:
We are for your movement and support your fight against attacks by your Government.
In Britain, as almost everywhere in Europe, Governments impose austerity measures to meet the crisis.
Employees, retirees, deprived of employment, students, and all young people are not those responsible for the crisis. They must not bear all the consequences.
The solution to stimulate the economy is not to attack the public services, raising the age of retirement, to increase pension contributions, or to lower pensions.
The CGT Union and all its members, we wish you all our best wishes of success for this new day of mobilization and strike on Wednesday, November 30, 2011.
At the call of the F.S.E.S.P. (European Federation of trade unions of the public Services) and of the C.G.T. we will also be in action and organize several trade union rallies in France this 30 November to say:
"NOT THE AUSTERITE! YES A EMPLOYMENT AND PUBLIC SERVICES!
Be sure, dear friends, that the CGT Union and its members are with you and welcome your combativeness.
