NORTH WEST UNIONS - FIGHTING FOR YOUR LIFE! www.thompsons.law.co.uk


HEALTH AND SAFETY UNDER THREAT Our health and safety is under attack and we must defend it! The government believes that health and safety is a burden on business. It is putting the safety and health of Britain’s workers under threat, by trying to slash the laws that protect you, cut enforcement and inspection and make it harder to win compensation for injuries. These proposed cuts are not inevitable. North West trade unions, safety campaigners and the TUC want proper legal protection for all those in work, a strong HSE, and a right to seek justice if things go wrong. Workers’ Memorial Day this year falls on a Saturday so the TUC is calling for a day of action to defend health and safety. Never has the message been more important than now. Let’s ensure that we make it clear that we want clear commitments and action from those who should be protecting us.

Join our demonstration in Manchester on Saturday, 28 April. Meet near the CIS Building, corner of Corporation Street and Miller Street, Manchester at 12.00 noon.
