11am, College Green, Bristol
Facebook event: Bristol Protest for Pay Justice
Bristol health and social care workers will be protesting along with colleagues across the country demanding a 15% pay increase paid from 1 December 2020, in order to start recovering a decade of lost wages.
From the organisers: “We are calling on NHS staff and supporters to join us to send a clear message to the government. We do not accept your plans to exclude us from the public sector pay increase, and we will make ourselves heard until you listen.”
All attendees are asked to respect social distancing as much as possible and the planned route gives as much space as possible. Mask wearing will be mandatory, and masks will be available on the day for those that don’t have them. Attendees are asked to wear blue, or a blue ribbon in solidarity.
There will be several speakers including Sheila Caffrey President of Bristol Trades Union Council.
At 11.58 there will be 2 minutes of still silence for all our brave colleagues that lost their lives.
The march will then proceed to Castle Park, making as much noise as possible!
An online rally will also be taking place from 11:30am to 1pm for anyone who cannot join outdoor protests. Details can be found here Online DEMO for NHS PAY Justice
