We’ve had a very positive response to the proposal for a protest/rally against the anti-union laws on Tues. 13th October at 5pm on the Town Hall steps below the fountains. It is timed to coincide with the Trade Union Co-ordinating Group protest and rally in London. We will issue a press release on that basis.

Barnsley College UCU have agreed to ‘chair’ the protest/rally and I urge all unions to bring union flags/banners and placards opposing the anti-union laws. I hope union representatives or individuals will speak too.

Please encourage the maximum number of your members/friends to come. A lively very visual protest  will build on the fantastic turnout in Manchester on Sunday and kickstart a co-ordinated campaign of opposition to the Tories’ Bill in Barnsley.

In solidarity,

Dave Gibson
