National Public Service Alliance- 'Scrap the Levy' Statement sign now

The government is determined to impose the pension levy on all public servants. It has no serious intention of making those who created the economic mess pay. We have seen no proposals which will seriously tax the rich property owners and speculators who created the economic crisis.
The great march on February 21 showed that many workers are angry and want their unions to stand up to those who want to make us to pay. We salute the CPSU for showing that the only way to stop the levy is to take determined action. Now is not the time to be cutting a deal with the government. The ICTU must state clearly that it wants the levy scraped. How can you sit down with a government who has put its hand in your pocket and taken a large chunk of your wages? How can you talk to a government who has unilaterally decided not to pay wage increases?

If we cannot stop these attacks the trade union movement will be seriously weakened. It is quite clear that the government will be looking for more cuts. Determined action is needed to show that we will not role over in the face of these attacks.

We support the ballots now being conducted and urge all workers to Vote YES for action.

We demand:
1. Scrap the levy. No to wage cuts.

2. A one day national stoppage of all public sector workers to remove the levy. This should be part of a determined campaign in all unions to have the levy removed.

3. A pension protection fund for all workers.

4. Make the rich pay for crisis. We are calling for serious taxes on the wealthy and the removal of all tax reliefs and shelters. We demand tax equity.

Please support these four demands.
Add your name to this public statement calling for a national stoppage to scrap the levy
