GENERAL ELECTION 2017
Please see attached a copy of the latest ‘In Touch’ activists’ bulletin. This includes food for thought and issues you can raise in the next four weeks in conversations with members.
UNISON will be producing advice on campaigning amongst our own members and urging activists and members to get involved in local campaigns.
In the meantime, please see below an email from Unions Together, the national umbrella organisation of unions affiliated to Labour. This includes 20 pledges to working people that you need to know about.

Subject: Our pledges to working people
|Last week Labour made 20 pledges to working people – from banning zero hour contracts, a £10 real Living Wage to scrapping the Trade Union Act, a Labour government will put working people first.
Under the Tories, for too many people work is insecure and pay isn’t enough to make ends meet. Labour will create decent jobs you can build a life around, giving you more security and equality in the workplace.
I’m proud that Labour is standing on these pledges to working people and I’ll be doing everything I can to ensure that people up and down the country hear the Labour alternative to Tory insecurity.
Labour is committed to building an economy that provides decent pay, job security and control over our working lives, but we need your help to spread the word.
There are lots of ways to get involved, from sharing on social media, to emailing your friends or joining us at one of our campaign events. Click below to join the campaign team?
Remember – if you have local or mayoral elections tomorrow, make sure you vote Labour – because we need Labour in our town halls too, to stand up for working people.
I hope to see you on the campaign trail.
All the best,
Labour Party National Elections and Campaign Coordinator
