Mick is a well-known leader, and the media performance is one their strong points for the speaker. This was particularly true during the recent strike by workers in the railway department. They went on strike due to the ongoing dispute between the members and the workers regarding the security and salary of their jobs, as well as the safety of their colleagues.
Other speakers are also well-known in their fields. Christina McAnea from Unison, Sharon Graham from Unite, Patrick Roach from the teaching union NASUWT and Jo Grady from the further and higher educational union UCU are just a few of the speakers. Yvette Williams is also from Justice 4 Grenfell. Traffic along these routes will be heavy. The roads will close at 5 a.m. and will not be open to traffic until then.
