Branch officers and workplace organisers are attending the TUC national demonstration on 18th October.
GMB regional office are organising coach travel for the return journey and all members, their families and friends are welcome and encouraged to attend.
If you would like to join us please contact your local representative or branch office as soon as possible.
The march will assemble from 11am on the Embankment near Blackfriars. It will then move off at noon, and march via Northumberland Avenue, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly to Hyde Park for a rally.
There will be an assembly area on the Embankment and a viewing platform in Hyde Park for wheelchair/scooter users. Please let the branch office know as soon as possible if any members require British Sign Language interpretation at the rally.
This is a slightly shorter route that previous marches, and it’s hoped that this will allow more people to get to Hyde Park in time for more of the rally content. This will mean that the march does not pass Westminster or Downing Street. There will also be a short march for those who do not wish to do the full route.
The key Tube stations will be Blackfriars, Southwark and St Pauls. Temple is likely to be closed as it is small and easily overcrowded.
