Unions beyond the election
Over the next few months unions will understandably focused on the General Election. Labour Party affiliates will be busy mobilising people and resources to try and deliver a Labour victory; and unions more broadly will be working hard to ensure that the priorities of union members and their families are reflected in Party manifestos.
Whatever the outcome of the next election, two things are clear. Firstly, unions and the TUC will want to ensure that government takes on board the issues that matter to working people and their families. Secondly – and perhaps most importantly – we will need to step up our efforts to ensure that unions have the capacity and the resilience to do the bread and butter work of representing our members effectively in the workplace and beyond.
On March 16 Unions 21 will be hosting a conference exploring some of these key issues — you can find out more and register for the event here.
