The demonstration will bring together parents and nursery nurses to deliver a message to COSLA, who are meeting in the city on Thursday. The main speaker at the rally will be Matt Smith, Unison's Scottish secretary.
The march and rally will be led off by a group of parents supporting the nursery nurses' case for decent pay, and will also feature a 'nursery nurse choir' from Dundee, who have re-drafted some well-known seasonal tunes.
Earlier the same day Joe Di Paola, Unison's Scottish organiser for local government, will deliver a petition in support of the claim, to Edinburgh City Council. He will also address the council.
Mr Di Paola said: 'COSLA should stop wasting their time encouraging councils to try and split nursery nurses with local offers. Nursery nurses are rejecting these. They can see what a mess would be created if nursery nurses are paid differently depending on where they work. Not only is this unfair, it is bad for the education of kids and the service as a whole.'
