BARAC believes that all workers whether they are public sector or the private sector should receive a good pension. That’s why it supports the Fair Pensions for All Campaign.
We call on black workers, communities and services users to support the strikes on November 30th - cuts to the public sector impact on black workers disproportionately and we need to fully participate in campaigns to defend jobs, services, pensions and communities.
We encourage you to attend and get involved in anti cuts groups and union campaign activities building for maximum turnout on 30th November which could see up to 3 million public sector workers out on strike and on the day if you are in a striking union it's essential that you are out on strike, on the picket lines and attending the many marches and rallies that will be taking place in Towns and Cities across the UK.
