TUC NEW DEAL FOR WORKERS DEMO ON 12TH MAY
We have just over a month until the TUC New Deal for Workers Demo in London on 12th May. This event is set to be the biggest gathering of Trade Unionist in the UK for many years. It is absolutely vital that the CWU has the strongest possible turnout and all our Branches are represented.
We are working with our Regional Secretaries to measure the expected attendance and some of the work being undertaken by our Branches is innovative and impressive. However, we are aware this is not the case in all areas. In the coming weeks and at Annual Conference we will be reiterating the need for the whole union to get behind this demonstration. The CWU have been at the forefront of calling for a New Deal for Workers and the 12th May is a key part of this campaign.
Again, we encourage Branches to book coaches and trains and fill them with members, representatives, friends, families and supportive groups such as Labour CLPs.
Closer to the date we will release the exact location of our block on The Embankment, where we have been allocated a prime position. The Union will be providing merchandise and flags for the event and Branches are also encouraged to bring their banners.
We will continue to promote the event through social media and our other communications channels.
Finally, we ask all Branches to ensure that maximising attendance on the 12th May is a priority commitment.
