The 135th Durham Miners’ Gala takes place on Saturday 13 July
The Gala is the biggest Labour Movement event in Europe and this year one of the key speakers is Dave Prentis, General Secretary so we want to see a huge wave of UNISON members showing their support.
UNISON members and their families are asked to assemble 8.30 am. at Redhills or alternatively join us in the Market Square from 10.00 am. to march together with banners and the band to the Racecourse.
Speakers on the Day include:
- Dave Prentis, UNISON General Secretary
- Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Business, energy & Industrial Strategy
- Laura Pidcock MP, Shadow Minister for Labour
- Len McCluskey, Unite General Secretary
- Shami Chakrabarti, Shadow Attorney General
- Dave Ward, The Communications Union General Secretary
- Kevin Courtney NEU General Secretary
- Doug Nicholls, General Secretary of the General Federation of Trade Unions.
See you there!
