|Due to Covid, both the TUC and our rally will again be virtual this year. This will be the 12th successive year that we have lobbied the TUC for the fighting programme that is needed by workers.
Confirmed speakers so far: Sharon Graham Unite General Secretary, Sarah Woolley BFAWU General Secretary, Carmel Gates NIPSA General Secretary (Designate), Joe Simpson POA Deputy General Secretary and Joe Kirby RMT NEC & offshore worker. We will also be having an open mic to allow rank & file union members and reps to have their say.
The pandemic has seen workers fight for their lives and increasingly our livelihoods as bosses unleash an offensive to make us pay for the crisis, including through fire and rehire and union-busting while their Tory Government proposes a public sector pay freeze and further austerity.
But workers are fighting back, with a strike wave that has seen important victories. Come and hear about the action that is taking place from union leaders and shopfloor workers on the front line.
This is an open forum to have your say, from the fight for workplace safety to defending our jobs and hard-won pay and conditions to stopping yet more privatisation of the NHS.
