Emergency strikes bill protest in Westminster – will you be there?

Three identical posters side by side. The picture at the top is of a crowd in Westminster with Big Ben clock tower on the right. Text reads "Emergency Protest: Protect the right to strike. Monday 22 May Parliament Square 6pm start." The colours of the poster are entirely shades of red on a marbled grey background.

Rishi Sunak wants to take away our right to strike. The Conservative government is forcing their anti-union “Minimum Services Level” Bill through parliament as quickly as they can. If passed, it will mean that when you democratically vote to strike, you could be forced to work and be sacked if you don’t.

These new laws are a direct attack on our fundamental right to strike to defend our pay, terms and conditions. We’ve seen how important the right to strike is in the last twelve months. We need to stop this bill.

Join the emergency protest in Parliament Square on Monday 22nd May at 6pm 

On Monday 22nd May, the Minimum Services Level Bill returns to the House of Commons where MPs will cast their final vote.

MPs will have a clear choice: Reject the bill and support the right of working people to go on strike for fair pay. Or attack our fundamental rights and sack workers if they take strike action.

This bill will do nothing to resolve current industrial disputes or to help union members improve their working conditions. It will only make things worse.

On Monday 22nd May, as the bill goes through its final stages, the TUC have called an emergency protest outside Parliament. Can you join other TSSA members and workers from across our movement to make your voice heard?

At the protest, we will hear from union members and leaders on what we must do next. We will not give in until these laws are defeated. Please let us know that you are coming.

Every union member is under attack from these new laws. We must defend the right to strike.

Join the protest
