The STUC is organising a mass demonstration on 20th October in Glasgow. The event will coincide with a similar event in London under the banner ‘A future that works’.                                                            The Coalition Government may be in crisis but they are still refusing to change course from their dangerous and damaging programme of cuts and austerity.

On the morning of Saturday 20th October, trade unionists and community activists from across Scotland will gather for a march through Glasgow to play our part in telling the Government that enough is enough.

The labour movement will return triumphantly to George Square on October 20th. Following protracted negotiations and helpful interventions from elected councillors we are now able to say with confidence that George Square will not be considered a no-go zone for peaceful protest in the future.Assemble at 11.00am to hear a range of speeches before marching to Glasgow Green with your banners waving! The rally at Glasgow Green will feature speeches, music (original compositions on the theme of social justice from Scottish Schools) and projected scenes from the London march and rally.

Edinburgh TUC has booked a 70 seater coach jointly with Edinburgh EIS to travel through to the march. Seats are free and can be booked, first come first served, by e-mailing

The coach will leave Waterloo Place at 9.00 am to arrive in Glasgow at the assembly point at 10.30 am.
It is planned to leave Glasgow at 3.00 pm to arrive back in Edinburgh at around 4.30 pm.

* if this coach is filled and more people wish to go Edinburgh TUC will try to make arrangements for a further coach.
