Statement from Trades Union Council Officers
The May Day event which was planned for 28 April – and which included a commemoration of Workers’ Memorial Day – will not now be taking place as the Council has decided not to grant permission for it to go ahead.
Waltham Forest Trade Union Council Officers have a number of concerns about this decision. We will be reporting them to our next meeting and a full statement will be issued in due course.
In the meantime, we want to thank those who agreed to speak or perform at our event – as well as those organisations that were to provide food and drink, child-friendly activities and campaign stalls. We apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience the Council’s decision has caused.
