Beyond Austerity: Unite pre-Budget seminar, July 11th

11 July 2013

Following a series of austerity Budgets which have shrunk the economy, reduced social protection benefits and cut workers' take home pay, the time has come to look Beyond Austerity - to examine the kind of Budget we need to stimulate the economy, put people back to work and give hope to households and local communities. In this pre-Budget seminar organised by Unite, a range of speakers will give their perspectives on Budget 2014. The event has been designed to maximise discussion and debate between the speakers and other participants.

The seminar will run from 9.30 am to 2 pm on Thursday, July 11th, in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin. The full programme is below. If you have already registered, we look forward to seeing you on the 11th; otherwise, please contact alex.klemm@unitetheunion.org to register.
