12 May 18 web banner

After eight years of Tory austerity, our NHS is in crisis, homelessness and child poverty has soared and real wages are still lower than before the crash in 2008. Jobs are insecure and badly paid, with more than three million workers trapped on zero hours contracts, in agency work and bogus self-employment. It shouldn't be this way. Join us to tell the Tories their time is up. 

WHEN: Saturday 12 May 2018, 11:00 -16:00
WHERE: London, Embankment to Hyde Park 

We’re marching for decent jobs and better pay. For stronger rights and a voice at work. For a growing economy that works for all. And for fully-funded, free at the point of use public services. We demand a new deal for working people.  Download the Unite top tips for a fun day out and successful march on 12 May [PDF].
