The Tories’ attack on the labour movement came hard and fast. The Trade Union Bill attacks our right to strike, to campaign and to voice our concerns through politics. Throughout history, as trade unionists we have been political because we were denied justice, we have spoken out to defend the rights of our friends and colleagues, in work and out. We mustn’t lose this vital right. Businesses got 3 years to introduce 5p charges for plastic bags, yet unions only get 3 months to transition. They're removing civil rights and seeking to destroy trade union organisation in this country. The Tory Government is arrogant and dismissive of the rights and needs of working people. Join unionstogether today and help stop this Trade Union Bill.
Paul Kenny, Chair, unionstogether.

UNIONS TOGETHER IS THE CAMPAIGNING VOICE OF THE 14 TRADE UNIONS THAT ARE PART OF THE LABOUR PARTY.
Together, the 14 affiliated trade unions bring the voices of almost 3 million union members to the heart of the Labour Party.
In communities across the country, Labour and trade union members campaign together on issues that matter to all of us. From saving our NHS, to defending jobs, to speaking up for our rights at work – together, the labour movement is stronger when we are campaigning together.
We campaign for the Labour Party because we believe that hard-working people are better off with a Labour Government. And we campaign within the Labour Party because we want to help make sure that Labour stands up for the needs of our members.
Together, we bring the voices of 3 million working people to the heart of the Labour Party - and we want yours to be the next voice that we represent.
