With the recent election of a Tory government intent on continuing to decimate our vital public services, reduce welfare benefits to the sick and the working poor, and further restrict the rights of Trade Unionists, the Durham Miners’ Gala – the country’s biggest and most historic trade union celebration – is more important than ever.
Every July, more than 120,000 people join together to celebrate our values, our heritage and achievements. The Big Meeting is an unparalleled display of defiance, solidarity and hope – and it must continue.
That’s why I am asking all Unite members in our Region to help secure the Gala for the future by signing up to the friends of the Durham Miners’ Gala today. This can be easily done by clicking on this link to their website.
Yours in solidarity.
