TUSC will oppose all cuts to council jobs, services, pay and conditions. Reject increases in council tax, rent and service charges to compensate for government cuts. Vote against the privatisation of council jobs and services.
Building the alternative to austerity starts with you! On May 22nd, every voter in Portsmouth will have the opportunity to vote against cuts.
14 candidates from community campaigns, the RMT trade union and the city's socialist parties are standing together as part of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC).
TUSC will stand hundreds of candidates across the country, representing the largest left-of-Labour challenge since 1945.
"Only TUSC candidates have pledged to oppose all cuts to our vital public services", said Sean Hoyle, RMT organiser. "Neither Labour or UKIP represent an alternative to Coalition cuts. We're standing because if working people want an alternative to austerity, we have to do it ourselves."
