Wigan Unison members facing wage cuts and an assault on nationally held terms and conditions of service by the local council are pressing on with plans for a demonstration on 21 March.
The demo will begin in Mesnes Park and proceed through the town centre. Organisers hope it will be a rallying call to trade unionists and members of the public to resist the pressure to make them pay for the recession.
Tony Broxen, a Unison activist helping organise the demo, said, “Every worker in the town is under pressure.”
Unison is encouraging people to bring their families and children, homemade placards and union banners. A brass band from Haydock will lead off the march.
