The Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) predicts thousands from Scotland will join hundreds of thousands in London as union members, students and community activists converge to march for the alternative.

Grahame Smith, STUC General Secretary said:

“STUC has been inundated with requests for help with transport to London for Saturday’s march and rally. We have chartered three trains and 20 buses and many unions are running additional buses too.

“All in all we expect up to 5000 Scots to take the trip to London to march for the alternative, which is unprecedented.

“They will be of all ages and from all walks of life including pensioners as well as hundreds of students.”
