The march and rally coincided with three days of disruptive strike action by railway workers and came a week after a delegation from Wigan’s National Education Union (NEU) branch travelled to London support the Trade Union Council’s We Demand Better demonstration.

There were speakers including striking RMT railway workers and representatives from Unite, Stand Up To Racism, Bakers Union, Unison and the NEU.
