March for jobs!

Last Wednesday, Brighton and Hove Trades Council and the Youth Fight for Jobs campaign organised a meeting for people facing redundancy as a result of closures and cuts in businesses in the Brighton area.

Workers from Lloyds and Threashers attended, along with trade unionists from both the private and public sectors - Argus report here.

One of the things to come out was the idea of a march through Brighton top oppose job losses.

It was clear from the meeting that workers feel a sense of isolation and powerlessness, and a joint march would be a way to overcome this.

The march is likely to happen early in the new year. Watch this space!
