Pay Up Now - March on Sunday, 1st October 2017



There is an urgent need and opportunity to get rid of the 1% public sector pay cap.

We need to ensure that public sector employers have the funding they need to give all staff a pay rise and to begin to restore what staff have lost since 2010.  This is an important time to put maximum pressure on the Government prior to the budget this Autumn.  

What you can do:

March in Manchester.  Tell the Tories to PAY UP NOW by joining the march on Sunday 1 October.  The march takes place on the first day of the Conservative Party Conference and is part of a series of events organised by the People’s Assembly in Manchester.

UNISON members will assemble on Liverpool Road from 1.00 p.m.for the march at 2pm.

There will be speakers and activities at the Castlefield Arena from 11am

Attend a public sector pay meeting.  The North West TUC is organising a series of pay meetings across the region in the run-up to the march.
