In collaboration with TULO and the Trade Union Group of MPs, The Centre for Labour and Social Studies (Class) is organising a series of events under the title “The Great British Rip Off: How can we tackle the living standards crisis?”, where working people and trade unionists will have the chance to discuss the cost of living crisis with each other as well as the panel of experts.
Our Newcastle event will take place at 6pm, on Thursday, 13th March 2014, in Newcastle at the Royal Station Hotel (Neville Street, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 5DH) and will feature the following speakers:-
· Mark Ferguson (LabourList)
· Ian Lavery MP (TUG, MP for Wansbeck)
· Cllr Laura Pidcock (unionstogether)
· Tim Roache (Regional Secretary of Yorkshire and North Derbyshire GMB, President of Class)
· Professor Tracy Shildrick (Leeds University)
We can provide leaflets, like the one attached, text for an email, etc and would appreciate any help you can offer!
