Northern Public Services Alliance

In 2010 public service trade unions in the North East and Cumbria recognised the likely assault on public services that could follow the general election.  Since then the Northern Public Services Alliance of trade unions in the public sector has helped highlight the attacks on services in our region while arguing for clear economic alternatives to austerity.
