The socialist press reports the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition conference

Last Saturday saw over 200 people assemble in London for the autumn Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) conference.

The opening session on the role of TUSC in the new situation was introduced by platform speakers from the main constituent organisations of TUSC, headed up by an address from the president of the RMT transport workers' union, Peter Pinkney.

Other sessions agreed TUSC's core policies for the 2016 local elections (see http://www.tusc.org.uk/17112/09-09-2015/the-tusc-2016-local-elections-draft-policy-platform) and, in a separate debate, that TUSC would campaign against EU membership in the forthcoming referendum, while guaranteeing the right of TUSC participating organisations, members and candidates to present an alternative position.

Reports of the conference debates were carried in Socialist Worker (see http://socialistworker.co.uk/art/41398/Debating+where+next+for+TUSC+after+Corbyn%E2%80%99s+win) and The Socialist (http://www.socialistparty.org.uk/articles/21473/28-09-2015/tusc-central-in-the-battle-for-a-working-class-anti-austerity-voice).

The TUSC national steering committee is meeting on October 7th to discuss the action points from a successful event.
