Come to the TUSC conference this Saturday and join the debate
The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition is meeting this Saturday in a conference to discuss its plans for 2017. A conference agenda document is now available on the TUSC website at http://www.tusc.org.uk/txt/394.pdf
The main session will be a forum under the heading, 'TUSC's role now and the 2017 elections', to explore how TUSC should operate in the welcome new political situation opened up by Jeremy Corbyn's leadership of the Labour Party.
The forum will involve platform speakers from the three constituent organisations of TUSC - the RMT transport workers' union, the Socialist Party and the SWP - with plenty of opportunity for debate from the floor. It will be chaired by Jeremy Corbyn's old parliamentary backbench fellow rebel, Dave Nellist, the former Labour MP (1983-1992), who is now the chairperson of TUSC.
There will also be a conference session on TUSC's campaigning tasks in the battle against council cuts, as local authorities prepare to set their 2017-2018 budgets by the end of March.
The conference is on Saturday 28th January from 11am to 4-30pm (registration from 10am) at Student Central, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HY.
There is a conference registration fee of ¬£10 waged and ¬£2 unwaged/low-waged. There is no need to register in advance - and pre-registration has now closed - but please come early if you have not done so.
There will be capped pooled fare of ¬£15 to not discourage attendance from outside London. This means that if your transport costs are more than ¬£15 you can get the difference back (although please do what you can to keep costs down as any capped fare shortfall will come from TUSC campaign funds). If your travel costs are less than ¬£15 you will have to pay in the difference to the pooled fare.
