The Royal College of Nursing attended our planning meeting and are discussing their regional plans soon.
The NUT said that they would be paying for a coach or at least contributing to one and several other unions and the TUC have said that they can also contribute funds to booking coaches and to publicity for the demo.
The SWTUC are also discussing co-ordinating transport regionally as they have done for previous national demonstrations. More on this soon.
