2,000 people, the biggest rally and demonstration in Wolverhampton in living memory.
A testament to the work of the unions involved in the trades union council. This trades union council has shown once again that the power of a collective is greater that it’s constituent parts.
2012 affiliation forms have been sent to branch secretaries – please return asap.
Leafleting of public took place before in Bilston High St, Wednesfield High St, and twice at railway & bus stations. 10,000 rally leaflets distributed. Theatre production and stall.
