Head Office Circular No. NP/6/23


To all Branches and Regional Councils

Dear Colleagues


CORRECTION - EMERGENCY DEMO - Protect the right to strike – Monday 16th January 6PM – Opposite 10 Downing Street


This week the Government tabled legislation that launches a fundamental attack on our democratic and human rights to withdraw our labour. The Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill will give the Secretary of State for Business the power to set Minimum Service Levels following “consultation” across six different sectors including Transport, Health, Fire and Rescue, Education, Nuclear and Border Security.


The second reading of this Bill takes place in Parliament on Monday 16th January and we are mobilising an emergency demo to send a clear message to Government that we will simply not accept this attack on our fundamental and democratic rights to strike.




Details: Monday 16th January from 6pm

Venue: Opposite 10 Downing Street, Whitehall, SW1A 2AA


This protest will include speakers from RMT and other trade union leaders. Further information to follow.


Please make every effort to attend and bring flags and banners.


Yours sincerely


Michael Lynch

General Secretary
