TUC national demonstration

London - Portland place, W1B 1PR -> Parliament Square, SW1 3BD

We Demand Better

On Saturday 18 June, the trade union movement will be taking to the streets to demand action on the cost of living – a new deal for working people, and a pay rise for all workers.

Families across the country are bearing the brunt of the cost-of-living storm. Every worker needs a real pay rise in 2022.

The government needs to act now. Let’s come together on 18 June to speak out.

UNISON members will be marching with thousands of people from all over the UK, followed by rally in Parliament Square. Join us in London!

Why are we marching?
