Labour movement prepares for TUC march

TRADE unionists are gearing up for a major TUC-organised march and rally this spring.

The New Deal For Working People demonstration on Saturday May 13 will call for more and better jobs as well as a more equal society.

Announcing its support, public-sector union GMB pointed out that, in the last decade, workers across all industries have faced a rapid growth of precarious, casual work, often badly paid or on zero-hours contracts.

London regional secretary Warren Kenny said:  “Fair and balanced employment practices and laws have been hard fought-for over many decades.

“They exist to protect working people from inequality, bullying and to provide them with the most basic rights anyone should be entitled to expect.”

Marchers will assemble on the Embankment between Hungerford Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge from 11am, before moving off at noon to march to Hyde Park. There the rally will take place, finishing at 4pm.
