Yes 2 workers rights, No 2 the Tory TU Bill #Right2Strike
Monday 2nd November 5.15pm
Cascade steps, the Fountains, City Centre (opposite Hippodrome)
***Action called jointly Bristol People’s Assembly & South West TUC with support from regional Trades Council & unions Unite, Unison, UCU, FBU, PCS, NUT***
The government's ‘Trade Union Bill’ seriously attacks the hard-fought-for *right to strike* & organise for proper standards, pay & conditions at work.
Join us for this vibrant Protest (coinciding with TUC lobby of parliament as it votes on the bill) with music, giant banners, spectacle, speeches and all!
Our theme will be Workers’ Rights (or ‘What have the unions ever done for us?’ – tongue-in-cheek there!)…
So please come out laden with your home-made placards & banners (& union banners/gear!), if possible bearing #NoTUBill or #Right2Strike…
Eg. YES TO ONLINE BALLOTS! #NoTUBill
Whether you’re in one or not, this full-on assault on our unions is designed to undermine resistance to the Tory agenda of austerity, privatisation and a low-pay, rights-free workforce, so let’s all show our solidarity!
We’re hoping for a massive turn-out – please invite all your friends – and who knows, the protest may have to go on the move…
