Come and join us
The weather forecast is for sunshine in Glasgow on Saturday. And you couldn’t do much better than to spend some of it with friends and colleagues from UNISON demonstrating your support for the services that our members provide. Join us at Kelvin Way at 9.30 on Saturday 10 April. Bring your family and friends, there’s plenty for children to do too – bouncy castle, face painting, story telling, balloons, beat the goalie – and of course everything that Kelvingrove Park has to offer.

Why you should demonstrate on Saturday
Public services should not suffer because of the bank bailout. Our members didn't cause the crash, and neither did the people we serve every day in our communities.

Cuts will damage recovery from recession; cuts will hit public services we all depend on; cuts will threaten our members and their families.

This demonstration is your chance to tell the politicians of all parties at all levels - in Westminster, in Holyrood and in your area - that we will not accept cuts in our vital public services to bail out the fat cats.
