May Day greetings to UNISON Active readers!

'This year's May Day is picking up on intensified campaigning around the country. This will be reflected in London and at events across Britain, from Ipswich to Glasgow and from Oxford to Liverpool,' writes Roger Sutton in the Morning Star in a review of the continuing relevance of the 1st of May - International Workers' Day : http://morningstaronline.co.uk/news/content/view/full/103986

UNISON has issued a stark May Day warning to the Con Dem Government:

'Unless this government changes direction, it is heading for industrial turmoil on a massive scale. The government must understand that UNISON will fight tooth and nail to protect and defend public services. And UNISON will ballot one million of its members to strike to protect their pensions. This will not be a token skirmish, but a prolonged and sustained war, because this government has declared war on a huge proportion of the population'
