March for the Alternative

The National Executive Committee would like to thank POA branch officials and the membership in general, for the magnificent turnout by the POA on the 26th March 2011.

We have estimated that approximately 500-600 members attended, proudly marching with fellow trade unionist in a carnival atmosphere.  The TUC believe that there was in excess of 400,000 people at the demonstration and some commentators believe the crowd was as large as 600,000.

This is only the beginning of the campaign and the POA working closely with other unions needs to be at the forefront, in opposing the cuts.

Once again, many thanks to all who participated on the march and to those branches and members that attended branch meetings in their lunch time.  Your continued support will be invaluable.


Yours sincerely

General Secretary
