Mark Serwotka, the leader of the PCS civil servants’ union, will be speaking in town tomorrow night, Wednesday November 17, at a public meeting called by the Croydon Alliance for Public Services.
This is an important meeting as the civil service employs 5,000 in Croydon, and if planned cuts go through, thousands of jobs will go.
The Borders Agency is already losing 800 jobs with another 2,500 will go over the next three years.
Croydon council is also planning to cut 2,000 jobs.
The combined effect on the local economy could be devastating.
To hear about the local trades unions plans to oppose the Draconian spending cuts, attend the public meeting: 7pm, Wednesday November 17
