Young members Get on the Bus to PUT PEOPLE FIRST
Last Saturday and Sunday 10 young members from TSSA, Unison, PCS and NUT as well as a representative of Westminster Uni Students Union attended the TUC Activist Academy special ‘GET ON THE BUS’ to the G20 weekend school at Ruskin College.
The school was designed to maximise trade union participation in the PUT PEOPLE FIRST march which is taking place in London on March 28th.
During the weekend, the group learnt more about the issues behind the G20 summit and the march and the policy platform agreed by trade unions and a host of other organisations. Using this information, they linked it to the issues that their members were concerned about to plan awareness raising events in the workplace and how they could persuade as many members as possible to get down to London on the 28th. During the march, they will be filming their experiences as part of a special project and to help them with this they also got some training in making short films whilst they were at Ruskin.
