marching to Hyde Park
Jeremy Corbyn is set to join the trade union movement and tens of thousands of people in demanding a new deal for working people on Saturday 12 May.
The TUC has set out why everyone who wants to see an alternative to Tory austerity should join the march:
‘Because real wages are still lower than before the crash in 2008.
‘Because three million workers are stuck on zero hour contracts, in agency work and in low paid self-employment.
‘Because hardworking public servants haven’t had a proper pay rise for eight years.
‘Because our NHS is at breaking point.
‘And because years of cuts have led to poverty, homelessness and despair for too many. ‘
‘We’re marching for the alternative.
‘For a growing economy with great jobs in every nation and region of the UK.
‘For a £10ph minimum wage and the right to a voice at work.
‘For public services that are brilliant, funded and free at the point of use.
‘And for a society that roots out racism, sexism and discrimination.’
‘We’re the trade union movement.
‘We stand up for millions of working people all over the UK.
‘And together, we demand a new deal for working people.
‘Join us in London on 12 May.’
