This is a stand-out annual event in the Labour movement’s calendar, where trade unionists from across the country will gather in Durham, giving a voice to the oppressed throughout the world and celebrating trade union and community values.
Beginning with a banner parade through the city, attendees march to the old racecourse, where political speeches are then delivered from the stage. This year I will speaking at the event, and will be highlighting the importance of our New Deal for Workers Campaign. As part of this, I will be making a call to action for all trade unions to work together to change the balance of forces in the world of work.
We are calling for as big a CWU turnout from Branches as possible on the day, in Durham.
This year, the CWU will also be hosting social media platforms for the event.
CWU Branches can also show their support by joining the Friends of Durham Miners’ Gala and becoming what’s known as a “Marra”: The link for this is as follows:-
