Midlands TUC calls demo against Tory conference

Issue No. 2418

Midlands region TUC will hold a demonstration at the Tory Party conference in Birmingham on 28 September.

The demonstration will march through Birmingham City Centre under the slogan “Midlands Need a Pay Rise”. 

Midlands TUC will also hold a “Hard Up” festival to “help highlight the cost of living crisis affecting working people”. 

So far confirmed speakers include Owen Jones from the Labour Party, Unison union general secretary Dave Prentis, PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka, and Unite regional secretary Gerard Coyne. 

Doug Morgan, Midlands TUC executive member and Birmingham NUT assistant secretary, said, “The Tories will be planning how to squeeze workers’ wages and slash public services even more.

“We cannot rely on the Labour Party being elected. 

"That’s why supporting this demo, the national TUC’s demonstration 

on 18 October and the strikes is so important.”
