GPTU at Tolpuddle Festival 2016

Tolpuddle Festival

GPTU will have a strong presence at the 2016 Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Festival (15th-17th July) in Dorset, one of the most important events on the Trade Union movement’s calendar.

The festival is a celebration of Trade Unionism, and remembers the six Tolpuddle Martyrs, whose sacrifice is regarded as the birth of organised labour in Britain.

We are grateful to all Greens who can attend and help set up and run the Green Party / GPTU stall  any time from the Friday afternoon (15th July) to the Sunday (17th July) – and more importantly, if any Greens would like to march under the GPTU banner on Sunday 17th July. If you’re going to be there, please let us know!
