SIPTU join 'Stop the Cuts' Rally in Belfast

SIPTU members joined with hundreds of workers on the joint Trade Union Rally against proposed cuts at Belfast City Hall today (Wednesday 29th September.)

The NIC - ICTU rally was organised to coincide with the European day of action against austerity measures and drastic cuts to public services by Government's across the continent.

The rally included a number of speakers including Peter Bunting from ICTU and Patricia McKeown of Unison, with all speakers gaining a great response with rapturous applause from the enthusiastic audience.

SIPTU members defiantly demonstrated with placards and flags, backing the united call that workers should not pay for the irresponsible actions of the bankers.

Speaking from the march, SIPTU representative Anne Thompson said,

"Today's rally was called to galvanise support behind the campaign to stop cuts to essential public services and to send a very clear message to Sammy Wilson that local people will not tolerate or allow the £2 billion of cuts which he proposed."

"Siptu will be to the fore in working with all the unions, political parties, community and voluntary groups in ensuring that working people and those most in need are not footing the bill and suffering for the irresponsible and gung ho actions of the bankers."

"Today's rally was a great kick start to the campaign, and we encourage everyone to weigh in behind the next 'stop the cuts' rally at 1pm on 23rd October at Belfast City Hall. See you there!"
