In preparation of May 2014 local election, TUSC has re-activated the TUSC Brent steering committee, launched in 2012.
In Brent, 63 Councillor seats are up for election in 21 wards. Brent is currently labour-countrolled.
On Tuesday 11th June at the Torch in Wembley at 7:30pm, local trade unionists, anti-cuts campaigners and socialists were invited to the Brent TUSC organising committee meeting.
At the meeting, we had a representant of the RMT (Cat Cray), POA (John Hancock), SWP (Sarah Cox), SP (John Boyle) and the Independent Socialist Network (Paul Summers).
We discuss future events and activities to raise TUSC Brent profile locally. As a result, we set a date for a public meeting to discuss standing anti-austerity candidates in next year’s council elections in the borough.
