UNISON is making its final preparations for the 'Britain needs a pay rise' march and rally on 18 October. General secretary Dave Prentis is urging members to turn into "the biggest demo this country has ever seen."
Thousands of people will assemble from 11am on the Embankment near Blackfriars and move off at noon to Hyde Park, where there will be a rally with speakers and entertainment. Coordinated events are also taking place on the same day in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Please come along to show your support. The West Berkshire Council’s Unison branch will provide expenses in accordance with Branch Rules. If you want to show the government the strength of your feeling then please e-mail email@example.com to advise that you will be going and for any enquiries regarding expenses, meeting point etc.
