Britain still needs a pay rise: Rally for fair pay for public servants
Date
Tue 17 Oct 2017 - 18:30 to 20:00
Location
Parliament Square SW1P 3JX London
United Kingdom
Overview

On Tuesday 17 October we're holding a rally in Parliament square to demand an end to the unfair real terms pay cuts for public service workers.

The TUC is joining with our unions and thousands of supporters to tell the government that we have had enough. Public sector workers deserve fair pay, and the country can’t afford not to give it to them. We want you to join us.

We need the government to act fast to give all public sector workers the pay rise they deserve. They must:

  • Scrap the artificial restrictions on public sector pay
  • Make sure no public service workers are paid less than the real living wage
  • Find new money to fund a fair pay rise – don’t add pressure to already overstretched public services
  • Let employers, unions and pay review bodies work out the right pay deal for each sector
  • Recognise the loss of pay over the last seven years

We want you to come to parliament square to join us, and make your voice heard.

If you can’t attend the rally in person, tell your friends and family to get the word out. There are also events happening around the country.

Transport and Travel

There will be a London unions' feeder march touring around government departments, before joining the main rally. It will be forming up at 5.30 near Downing Street on Whitehall.

Please don't come to the area in coaches - there won't be access or parking near the Square. Public transport is the easiest route, aiming for Westminster and St James' Park underground stations, or Waterloo, Victoria and Charing Cross mainline stations.
