Bringing UNISON’s Pay Up Now! message into the birthplace of our democracy

On 7 April 2018 Surrey County UNISON came to Runnymede with banners held high and a message of hope

They came to call for a decent pay rise for public service workers, a minimum wage of £10 per hour for all, and an end to cuts and austerity.

Coordinated by Surrey County branch, on 7 April 2018, UNISON members and supporters marched and rallied in Runnymede: the constituency of Chancellor Philip Hammond and the site of the sealing of the Magna Carta.

The march was well supported by other unions, including the FBU, the RMT and Unite, with members of the public taking time to speak to the protesters and express their support.
