Tune in to People’s Assembly rally 12 September

PCS is supporting the People’s Assembly pre-TUC Rally at noon on 12 September, which will hear from leading trade unionists and social movement campaigners about how our movement must prepare to respond to the attacks of the Tories.

The Facebook live event, chaired by PCS President Fran Heathcote with speakers including our general secretary Mark Serwotka, will highlight how the last year has exposed all the insecurity that working people face under capitalism. Cuts, privatisation, low wages, attacks on social security and the NHS, zero-hours contracts and now fire and rehire.

The pandemic shows that the Tories are only interested in lining their pockets and those of their friends, even to the detriment of public health. We are entering a period of unprecedented struggle, and the trade union movement will be at the centre of defending workers' rights and civil liberties.

Tune in live to the rally.
