TUC pre-budget rally: A future for families

Pre-budget rally: A future for families

Wednesday 13 March 2013 at 18:00-19:30
Emmanuel Centre, 23 Marsham Street, London SW1 

Ordinary families are paying the price for an economic slump they did nothing to cause. With prices rising and wages held back, living standards are under attack. Public services are being slashed across the country, as jobs are cut. Millions – both employed and unemployed – will see benefits fail to keep up with prices. Yet in April the 50p tax rate for the richest will be cut as ministers press on with austerity that threatens a triple dip recession.

It’s time to change course and build a future that works – starting with the budget due on 20 March. Unite will be working with the TUC to put pressure on chancellor George Osborne to change course. The TUC is holding a public rally in Westminster on the evening of 13 March.

Why not register for a place at the rally, or if you can’t make it to London, pledge to watch the rally online. The TUC will be streaming it live and planning a series of online actions to make a huge noise about the budget that the chancellor won’t be able to ignore.
