Delegates attending the July meeting of the Council, discussed
a broad range of topics. Foremost of the topics was the potential
effects on jobs and services of impending cuts. A decision was made
to affiliate to the Right to Work Campaign, and to build towards
activity during the Week of Action prior to the Comprehensive
Spending Review in October.
Peter Norfolk produced a publication from December 1979 entitled
Cuts & You which was of great interest to delegates
and gave food for thought.

Other issues discussed included the Stop the War Campaigns
local activity. This included the Peace Walk and the release of
Private Joe Glenton.
The 30th Anniversary of the Alternative Oyster Feast
was in the planning process and support from unions and their members
was being sought.
The next meeting will be on Thursday August 12th 2010 at 8pm at
The Odd One Out Mersea Road, Colchester. All local Trade
Unionists are welcome to attend.
