NHS workers say “NO!” to Public Sector pay inequality

NHS workers say 'NO!' to Public Sector pay inequality

Saturday 8th August
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

We demand a new deal for working people!

Leaflet: We demand a new deal for working people!

Why? Because real wages are still lower than before the crash in 2008. Because three million workers are stuck on zero hour contracts, in agency work and in low paid self-employment. Because hardworking public servants haven’t had a proper payrise for eight years. Because our NHS is at breaking point. And because years of cuts have led to poverty, homelessness and despair for too many.

We’re marching for the alternative. For a growing economy with great jobs in every nation and region of the UK. For a £10ph minimum wage and the right to a voice at work. For public services that are brilliant, funded and free at the point of use. And for a society that roots out racism, sexism and discrimination.


We’re the trade union movement. We stand up for millions of working people all over the UK. And together, we demand a new deal for working people. Join us in London on
