Event description

Description

All workers deserve a great job so everyone has a chance to progress and get on in life. But far too many of us are stuck in zero hours, low paid or dead end jobs. It doesn't have to be this way.

The TUC has called a national demonstration on Saturday 12 May in London. This is going to be a key moment in the fight for public services and to fight against austerity and the Tories cuts.

Where? London: Victoria Embankment to Hyde Park

When? 12 May. We will assemble from 11am and move off at 12pm. The rally in Hyde Park ends at 4pm.

We’ll show decision-makers we value the public services we love – and the public are on our side. We won’t take the cuts and pay freezes lying down.

This march is set to be a big one. UNISON, the TUC and other trade unions are putting considerable support behind it. You’ll join thousands of like-minded people under the banner, Step up for Public Services.

It’s a march with a serious message but it’ll have a fun, family-friendly feel. Dig out your UNISON colours and let’s turn the streets purple. Plus there will be activities to keep your energy bubbling throughout the day. Make sure you’re there!

The demonstration will form part of the TUC Great Jobs Agenda campaign, which sets out the key demands of the movement for how we win a new deal for working people.

THE TRANSPORT IS FREE TO MEMBERS, THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF SWANSEA COUNCIL UNISON AND NEATH-PORT-TALBOT COUNCIL UNISON.

Coach leaves Swansea Guildhall 6am / Neath Train Station 6.20am / Briton Ferry 6.30am

PLEASE ONLY DOWNLOAD A TICKET IF YOU ARE COMING SO WE CAN MANAGE NUMBERS AND ANY ADDITIONAL TRANSPORT ACCURATELY.

Please message the organiser via this site if you have ordered a ticket but can no longer attend.
