ATUC affiliate trade unions have donated to the cost of the bus so there will be no cost for tickets.

Kate Ramsden, Vice President of the ATUC said, "We are delighted to be able to support this really important event by meeting the cost of a bus and our thanks go to UNISON Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City, Unite and ATUC delegates who agreed a donation from the Trades Council.

"As austerity and attacks on trade union rights are ramped up, it's vital that the entire anti-austerity movement in Scotland comes together in a show of opposition to the Tory government, so we really hope that the bus will be full.

"To coincide with the Peoples' Assembly event being held in London on the same day, the ATUC is throwing its weight behind this major STUC organised event which will underline the widespread disgust at Tory plans to embed and deepen austerity, targeting the most vulnerable."

This event is co-sponsored by a range of organisations involved in the Peoples' Assembly including major trade unions, the Radical Independence Campaign, Labour Party Campaign for socialism, the SNP Trade Union Group, the Communist Party and anti-racist grouping Hope not Hate.

"Let's make Saturday 20 June a truly historic event," urged Kate.
