UNISON Blackburn with Darwen has been invited to join other union members from across the UK for a rally and lobby of MPs against the controversial Trade Union Bill.
The trade unions think MPs should be focusing on the real problems this country faces, not undermining people’s right to be supported at work. That’s why thousands of people are going to parliament to talk to their MPs on November 2.
At 12.30pm, people will arrive at Central Hall Westminster (Storey’s Gate, London, SW1H 9NH) and enter the Great Hall where UNISON learning staff will be there to help.
A rally will take place from 1-3.30pm with lobbying in parliament starting at 2pm.
Throughout the afternoon groups will go over to the House of Commons to meet with their MPs to explain why they should vote against the bill.
It is best to contact your MP in advance by calling 0207 219 3000 to make an appointment.
