The CSP demands better - why we are marching

CSP members are mobilising to attend a Trades Union Congress-coordinated march and rally in central London on Saturday June 18 to demand action on the cost of living

The trade union movement is demanding government action to address the living standards crisis - through real pay rises, improved welfare, decent sick pay, more job security and better union rights.

Healthcare staff are on the sharp end of the biggest living standards squeeze for decades. Everything's going up but our wages, as living standards plummet.

It is therefore vital that physiotherapy staff, allied health professionals and other healthcare workers are there to shape the campaign for a new deal for working people.

CSP chief executive Karen Middleton explains why she is attending:

I will be joining CSP members on the 18 June for two reasons. Firstly, to show support for members - working in the NHS and elsewhere - whose pay is nowhere near where it should be following the loss in earnings that came with a decade of austerity.

And secondly, to connect again with members – to hear about their working lives, what’s of greatest concern to them, and what the CSP can be doing differently to help.

If you want to stand together with your colleagues, friends and family and to take action, sign up here to keep up to date of our plans as they develop
