11.30am down the full length of Union Street, to a Rally in the Castlegate at 12.15 where there will be a variety of speakers.
Alan Robertson, President of the ATUC urged union members, their families and friends, and community activists to attend the march and rally in numbers.
He said, "Once again marchers will be able to march the whole length of Union Street so it is really important that as many trades union and community activists as possible turn out.
