A Million Voices for Change

We want you to join our campaign because we think it really is time to create a fairer society. For too long our employers and our politicians have put profit and private gain before people and the public interest. A tiny minority have been getting rich at the expense of the rest of us.

Now, because of a crisis caused by the irresponsibility and greed of that minority, we are seeing people lose their jobs, their homes, their pensions, and all their hopes and dreams in the worst global recession since the second world war.

We need to say – never again. We’re not going back to business as usual – tax cuts and bonuses for millionaires while everyone else works longer and harder to make ends meet and look after their families.

Now is the time for real change. Now is the time to build a fairer society and a more balanced and sustainable economy – based on social justice, good jobs, and quality public services.

Why public service workers are important

Public service workers are on the frontline of dealing with this recession – helping people in financial difficulties, guiding people back into work, creating new opportunities through education and training, dealing with increased rates of homelessness, family breakdown, and mental health problems.

We want to make sure our members get the support and the resources they need to help people through hard times and lay the foundations of our economic recovery.

Working with other unions

This is an international crisis, it’s the crisis of an international economic system that has got out of hand and let people down.

We are working with our international allies, representing public service workers in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Sweden, Ireland and the Netherlands, all standing together for action to beat the crisis and build a fairer future.

Add your voice

We’re calling for:

  • social justice – help for those facing redundancy, repossessions and poverty – not bonuses and tax cuts for millionaires
  • good jobs – environmentally sustainable and socially useful jobs, with decent pay and pensions and a strong union voice
  • quality public services – no more privatisation. Increased *investment in accountable public services like health, education and housing.
