1st July demonstration

Unison’s General Secretary, Dave Prentis, announced today that the union would be supporting the 1st July People’s Assembly Against Austerity demonstration against the government.

The general election result, which bucked the polls which suggested a Tory landslide, showed that there is in fact a significant level of support for Jeremy Corbyn and Labour’s anti-austerity policies. The loss of their overall majority means that the Conservatives do not have a mandate to rule for the next parliamentary term, and may have to make an unseemly agreement with the Northern Irish Protestant religiously-conservative DUP.
