Protect the right to strike – Glasgow rally 1 February

Trades Hall of Glasgow, 85 Glassford Street, G1 1UH

1 February 2023, 7pm-9pm

Rishi Sunak is trying to force his anti-union “sack key workers bill” through parliament in a matter of weeks. It means that when workers democratically vote to strike, they could be forced to work and sacked if they don’t. That’s wrong, unworkable, and almost certainly illegal. We need to stop this bill.These new laws are a direct attack on working people’s fundamental right to strike to defend their pay, terms and conditions.Here’s how you can take partProtect the right to strike day
