A number of unions and trades councils have now informed us of their coach details for this Sunday's Manchester for the Alternative march and rally at the Conservative Party conference. These are listed below -please circulate and consider a financial donation to help these colleagues who have put the money up front to ensure a good presence of midlands trade unionists at this important protest.
Coventry TUC coach (8.30 am from Coventry Swimming Baths). Two Unite branches and Unison have covered most of the cost. Anyone needing a seat can ring Clive Dixon on 07799 340559.
Derby UNISON Only 12 seats left on the Sunday 2nd Oct. coach to Manchester. To book your place leaving Derby at 9:30am Full St. email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01332 643217/6
Nottingham Departs Nottingham (Royal Centre) at 9.00 am, Hucknall Market Place at 9.15 am, Sutton-in-Ashfield bus station at 9.30 am and Mansfield Rosemary Centre at 9.45 am. It is expected that the return coach will depart at 5.00 pm.
Union branches are asked to:
• Make a donation to Notts Trades Council. This will help us fund this coach and ensure we have sufficient funding to fight successfully in Nottinghamshire.
• Buy a number of seats for sale around your branch. We suggest a ticket price of £15.00 for waged and £5.00 for unwaged
Individual trade unionists are asked to:
• Pledge to come on the coach and bring family and friends with you! Family tickets are available at £40.00 for two adults and up to three children. Bargain!
• If you can’t attend but can afford to – buy a ticket! This will help us to provide a seat to someone who genuinely can’t.
Please let me know if you’d like a seat or seats on the coach. I’ll need a name or names, contact telephone number and email address, and your preferred pick up point.
