On 20 October hundreds of thousands of people will gather in central London to march for a future that works. [Here in Belfast there is a march as well.—Ed.]
They’ll be taking to the streets because they believe that government spending cuts and privatisation are not the way to get us out of recession. Instead, these cuts are standing in the way of delivering the jobs and growth that we need.
UNISON members believe cutting vital public services hurts the most vulnerable members of our society. People who can least afford to pay the price of the recession caused by the bankers.
We also know that austerity isn’t working – and most forecasts suggest that we face years of stagnation. The coalition government has got it wrong and they need to replace austerity with policies to create a future that works.
We care about healthcare, education, local services and policing. That’s why we are marching in London [and Belfast] on 20 October. If you care too, join us.
Together we can send a strong message to ministers to insist they deliver an economic policy to create jobs and growth, a society that benefits from world class public services and a commitment to a fairer future.
Together we are stronger. Sign up today
