MASS RALLY IN BARRY – SATURDAY 4 NOVEMBER
UNISON Cymru Wales has called an all-Wales #SaveOurServices rally in the constituency seat of the Secretary of State for Wales, Alun Cairns, on Saturday 4 November, assembling at 12pm King’s Square, Barry.
Hundreds of people are expected for a loud and colourful demonstration. Confirmed speakers include: Margaret Thomas UNISON regional secretary; Jane Hutt AM; Wales footballing great, Neville Southall; Attila the stockbroker, poet and activist; Paul James, comedian; Patrick Jones, poet; WTUC president Mike Jenkins and Sandra Perkes, local councillor and UNISON member.
Music will be provided by a pipe band.
UNISON will argue the Secretary of State is not standing up for the people of Wales and ordinary people have suffered for too long as a result of UK government cuts. Members of the trade union will be marching for fair funding for Wales, an end to austerity and an end to the public sector pay cap.
UNISON representatives will be available for interview.
For press attendance and request for interviews call Alastair Gittins, UNISON Press Officer on 07816 538397.
