TUSC supports Police march against cuts

600 police officers from South Wales will be amongst those demanding an end to government cuts to their pay and conditions, when they march through London next Thursday. According to the Evening Post, police officers are in militant mood.

Picking the same day as thousands of public sector workers in PCS, RMT, UCU, UNITE and NIPSA are striking seems like a clear signal that police officers identify with other public sector workers fighting cuts. The Police Federation is also balloting its members to gauge support for fighting for trade union rights, including the right to strike.

The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition is fully supportive of this demand. On Saturday (April 28) trade unionists were assisted by the police in marching through the city centre in Swansea to mark May Day - perhaps next year we will march together and maybe before too long we might strike together as well?


  1. Guardian reporting today that the Guantanamo Bay contractor is amongst those bidding to run police services in West Midlands and Surrey. These are the sorts of people that will be cutting police jobs, terms and services. Demand trade union rights including the right to strike!

  2. Am I right in understanding that the Police Federation has a built in bias towards the higher ranks? Sure I heared something on the radio that the higher ranks get an automatic 50% of the vote ... or something like that?
