Alan Robertson, President of the ATUC, urged union members, their families and friends, and community activists to attend the march and rally in numbers.

He said, “Once again marchers will be able to march the whole length of Union Street so it is really important that as many trades union and community activists as possible turn out.

“Please bring your banners, flags, pendants and signs to make the march and rally as colourful as possible.”

Kate Ramsden, Branch Chair added, “We had a really good turn-out last year, but we really would like more members to join us on Saturday 3rd May.”
