Our branch members will be attending this protest on June 18. Unite is organising transport and the Trades Union Congress (TUC) has a list of coaches which anyone can book a place on. Any branch member who would like financial assistance in attending should get in touch with our branch secretary.
From the TUC website:
Working people have had enough. Everything’s going up but our wages.
Ministers partied while people died. Now they do nothing while living standards plummet and P&O lays off hundreds of workers on the spot.
It’s time for a new deal for working people. We need help with energy bills and a real pay rise for every worker.
Let’s take matters into our own hands – and get out on the streets.
On 18 June, in London, let’s tell this government: we DEMAND better.
- A real pay rise for every worker – and a real living wage for all
- Respect and security for all workers – ban zero hours contracts, ban fire and rehire, decent sick pay now
- End racism at work
- Tax energy profits to pay our bills
- Raise universal credit
- Boost union bargaining rights now
