TUC rocks against austerity

 TUC lets work together
Help the N30 public sector strikes rock the Government and enjoy a brand new spin on a 1970s classic.

Download the 2011 version of Let's Work Together by hot new act The Workers and get this single in the charts.

If you want to know who's got the real X-Factor and genuine star potential, take a listen to Britain's most striking new act - a 14-strong ensemble including a firefighter, probation officers, a teacher, civil servant, social worker, student support officer and health service staff including a nurse, midwives, a physiotherapist and a clinical engineer.

And what have they all got in common? They'll all be out on the picket lines on November 30, when millions of public-sector workers will stand up together and rock this government.

The song will be launched on Monday 21 November to chart on Sunday 27 November - the week of the TUC Day of Action and the aim of the song is to get people talking about the importance of the public sector and its staff in a week when the government wants to focus on union bashing.

The single will also raise money for charity. A major part of the sale price, equivalent to about 40p out of the 99p cost in most outlets, will be donated by the TUC to Age UK to show support for today's pensioners.

Let's Work Together will be available to download from 2pm on Sunday 20 November on itunes, amazon and other major online retail outlets. Further information about the band and how to buy the single is available at www.theworkers.org

CWU general secretary Billy Hayes said: "As a big music fan myself, it's great to hear this classic again. It's the best reworking of Canned Heat's orignal Let's Work Together.

"Please buy the song - the more singles that are bought, the higher the chart placing and the more attention the song will get. This is why we need your support!

"The CWU is not directly involved in the November 30 action, but we support the strikes all the way - so let's all show it by backing this song."

Please support the song by:

- Buying the song and encouraging workmates, friends and family to buy it too.

- Send the message on and share the information on union websites and blogs.

* Let's Work Together was a 1970 hit for US group Canned Heat.
