Arriving and forming up
The UNISON block of the march will form up on The Embankment by Embankment Pier. We have been allocated Zone 2 which will be marked out by the TUC with signs on lamp posts, From 9.30am the area will be clearly visible due to the presence of six of large purple UNISON balloons.
The best way to get on to The Embankment by foot is from The Strand via the side streets Surrey Street and Arundel Street
Marchers should access the form up area from the rear and make their way forwards towards Zone 2 and the purple UNISON balloons.
The key tube stations are Blackfriars, Southwark, St Paul’s and Waterloo. Temple tube station is likely to be closed as it is very small, so make alternative plans.
