British Union Calls for General Strike

At its annual conference, the Communication Workers Union (CWU) unanimously backed calls for the Trade Union Congress (TUC) to co-ordinate a nationwide walkout against the government's "attacks" on pay, pensions and services.

Delegates at the Bournemouth conference also agreed to moves aimed at coordinating campaigns and strikes with other unions.

Speakers lined up to attack the government over the cuts, saying they were hitting workers and families hard and were leading to cuts in essential public services.'
