Working people across the UK have had enough. Everything’s going up but our wages. Join the trade union movement in London to tell this government: we demand better!

It’s time for a new deal for working people. We need help with energy bills and a real pay rise for every worker.

We demand:

  • A real pay rise for every worker – and a real living wage for all
  • Respect and security for all workers – ban zero hours contracts, ban ‘fire and rehire’
  • Demand decent sick pay now
  • End racism at work
  • Tax energy profits to pay our bills
  • Raise universal credit
  • Boost union bargaining rights
  • And more than that: we demand a government that listens and acts to support working people.

March and rally details

Join us in London on 18 June. Assemble at Portland Place from 10:30am, with the march starting at midday

There will be a rally from 1:00 pm in Westminster Square
