Join the ATUC at A Just Scotland March and Rally 18th October 2014

Aberdeen Trades Union Council is calling on all our affiliated unions and associated community groups to join us at the March and Rally in Glasgow on 18th October 2014 which will call for decent work and dignified lives.

The March and Rally is part of Challenging Poverty week and has been organised by the Scottish Trade Unions Congress (STUC) . The march will muster in Glasgow Green at 10am and will march off at 10.30am to a Rally in George Square.

The March and Rally has been timed to coincide with the TUC's mass demonstration in London, "Britain needs a Pay Rise."
Alan Robertson, President of the ATUC said, "Creating decent work and providing dignity for those who cannot work is at the heart of the battle against austerity and tackling inequality.

"As part of Challenge Poverty Week, trade union members and community activists from across Scotland are coming together in October to say, irrespective of their views on the outcome of the referendum ‘It’s time to create a Just Scotland’.


"This is an aspiration that trade unionists, community activists and members of the public in the North East  should all support and we are calling for a big turn-out.

"Bring your friends and families
Bring your work mates
Bring your banners …"

The ATUC and member trade unions are looking to put on buses to take people to this event. Keep an eye on this blog for more information.
