UNISON set to join mass demonstration of Tory Conference
UNISON and other unions representing millions of working people and their families will mobilise for a protest against the accelerating sell-off of the NHS to profit-driven private healthcare companies at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester on Sunday 29 September 2013.
The three biggest unions in the country - Unison, Unite and the GMB - announced on June 20th that they will be at the forefront of community protests to highlight the public's increasing concern at the piecemeal dismantlement of the NHS for the benefit of companies, such as Virgin Care and US private health providers.
As Tory MPs and delegates gather in Manchester, the unions will rally the public to reinforce the message that private healthcare companies will be helping bankroll the party's conference.
Dave Prentis announced the mass demonstration at the National Delegate Conference in Liverpool. Prentis was backed by Frances O Grady the General Secretary of the TUC.
Further details will be available in due course, transport will be provided from the South West.
