TUC MARCH AND RALLY – SATURDAY 19th MARCH, BLACKPOOL – MOBILISING THE CWU
The TUC have called a march and rally in response to the ongoing cost of living crisis. The event will take place from 11:00 on Saturday 19th March in Blackpool.
The CWU have been pushing the TUC to be more proactive in both their opposition to this government and their support for our New Deal for Workers Campaign. On this basis, it is crucial that our Regions and Branches are well represented on the 19th March.
The march and rally will coincide directly with the Tory Party Spring Conference, which is being held in Blackpool at the same time. This is a great opportunity for a trade union led activity to gain media coverage and challenge the actions of this government.
Branches will be aware that this event clashes with the UN Anti-Racism Day rally in London. Branches will of course make the appropriate decisions about delegations to each event. We will also ensure that our block and branding at the TUC organised march in Blackpool reflects our already well established CWU against racism messaging.
We will share further details on the march and rally in the coming weeks. We want to see a large block of members, representatives, friends, and families protesting under the CWU banner. We will be using all means possible nationally to raise awareness of this event.
