Rally over health and safety cuts in workplace

Rally in Lincoln

The Lincoln & District TUC is holding a rally in Lincoln to oppose cuts to health and safety protection in the workplace.

It's being held in advance of Workers' Memorial Day, and is part of a worldwide movement against attacks on health and safety protection.

Nick Parker, Secretary of Lincoln & District TUC, said:

"We're holding this rally on Saturday to highlight massive cuts of over a third to health and safety protection by the current Government.

"No one should have to face the devastating situation where a loved one goes out to work in the morning and never comes back because their employer didn't take looking after their health and safety seriously."
