Calderdale Trades Union Council is the local TU Council for the Calderdale MBC area in West Yorkshire. We exist to bring together union branches and members at a local level to campaign on issues affecting working people in their workplaces and their communities.
We've coordinated a letter signed by local groups and individuals opposing the Arts Council's efforts to restrict freedom of political expression.

The People’s Assembly Against Austerity has published a pamphlet: “In Place of Austerity – a programme for the people”. “It is essential that we, together with the Trade Unions, continue to build the mass movement further to force the Tories out of office, and to help elect and sustain a future anti-austerity progressive government – which, of course, would be under fierce attack by the bankers, big business monopoly corporations and their pet politicians and media. This is the clear aim of the People’s Assembly.”
This pamphlet is very useful can be used to win more people to an anti-austerity position, and convince them that there is a real, practical and achievable alternative.
