Trades union demonstrators, Trafalgar Square. A Trades Union Congress demonstration was held in Trafalgar Square in June 1980. These trade unionists have congregated in Trafalgar Square for a TUC demonstration against the Conservative government under Margaret Thatcher; their specific concerns were the threat of unemployment and poor pay. Representatives from unions such as the Union of Post Office Workers and the Transport and General Workers Union addressed the crowds.
