The event takes place on 12 May, with attendees asked to assemble at 11am at Victoria Embankment between Hungerford Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge, before moving off at 12pm to march to Hyde Park, where the rally will take place.

SoR members planning to attend should contact Paul Bromley to confirm meet up points and join the Society delegation.

Why march?

The TUC website states: “Because real wages are still lower than before the crash in 2008. Because three million workers are stuck on zero hour contracts, in agency work and in low paid self-employment.

“Because hardworking public servants haven’t had a proper payrise for eight years. Because our NHS is at breaking point. And because years of cuts have led to poverty, homelessness and despair for too many.

“We’re marching for the alternative.

“For a growing economy with great jobs in every nation and region of the UK. For a £10ph minimum wage and the right to a voice at work. For public services that are brilliant, funded and free at the point of use. And for a society that roots out racism, sexism and discrimination.”
