Rally against austerity cuts held in Bradford city centre
A public rally was held in Bradford city centre today against “the squeeze” on the wages of low paid workers and benefits.
Bradford Trades Union Council and The Bradford People’s Coalition staged the demonstration in Memorial Gardens at 12noon.
They were supported by civil servants who walked out in a row over pay and pensions.
The Public and Commercial Services Union took action after 84 per cent of members voted for a strike, with a 61 per cent turnout.
About 35 people gathered to hear speakers from the PCS union, the coalition group, the TUC and Bradford and District Disabled People’s Forum urge people to fight together against austerity cuts.
