Dear Colleagues,

TUC mass lobby of Parliament – protect the right to strike

A mass rally and lobby of Parliament will take place on 2nd November 2015 from 11.30. The rally will take place in Westminster Central Hall prior to the lobby. Members are encouraged to join the TUC and other union members from all over the country by coming together to lobby and rally against the Trade Union Bill.

The Trade Union Bill is a massive attack on trade unionists across Britain, but particularly in sectors such as transport.  We will be responding to the Government consultations on this matter and we are continuing to work with the Campaign for Trade Union Freedom.

The TUC have also launched an online petition in order to oppose Government plans to lift restrictions on the use of agency workers to break strikes. Please sign the petition by visiting:

Please make every effort to attend this important lobby, and to encourage family, friends and colleagues to attend. We need to show the Government how strongly we value our trade union rights and that we are prepared to fight their proposals.

Yours sincerely,


Mick Cash
General Secretary
