STUC MARCH and RALLY: DECENT WORK DIGNIFIED LIVES
SATURDAY 18th OCTOBER 2014:
MARCH FROM GRASGOW GREEN 10.30am
RALLY IN GEORGE SQUARE

POA (Scotland) recognise and share the frustration and anger of our members over the impact that the austerity measures have had on our member’s lives and work.

Savage reforms to our pensions which will see our members pay more for less and be compelled to work until the age of 68 and potentially beyond.

Low levels of pay and continued pay restraint driving down standards of living.

At the heart of the battle against austerity and tackling inequality is the drive towards creating decent work and providing dignity for those who cannot work.

That is why as part of Challenge Poverty Week, POA Scotland along with other trade union members and community activists from across Scotland are coming together in October to say, irrespective of their views on the outcome of the referendum

‘It’s time to create a Just Scotland’.

We encourage our members to come along, bring your friends and families, bring your work mates and take the opportunity to have your voice heard.

Yours sincerely

 

ANDY HOGG
Assistant General Secretary
