Welcome

In Welcome on May 26, 2013 at 5:06 pm

We are Calderdale Save Our Services, a group of local trades unionists and community members working to defend jobs and services in the Calder Valley. We are busy campaigning against privatisation and cuts to services in Calderdale and we want you to get involved!


Calderdale Save Our Services organised transport from the borough to the TUC’s “A Future That Works” demonstration last October and supports the Campaign to Keep Our NHS Public in the light of Lansley’s and Hunt’s NHS reforms. Calderdale SOS is also active in campaigning against the Government enforced cuts to Public services.
