From workplace to doorstep - standing for council

I have been a trade unionist all my working life as I believe that trade union membership is the best way of ensuring fairness at work for employees.

Better pay, better conditions. This has long been the mantra of much of the Trade Union movement and continues to be as we campaign for a Real Living Wage to replace the National Minimum Wage. The Real Living Wage of £10 per hour as advocated by the Trade Union movement is not some arbitrary and convenient figure like the tax paid by so many multi-national corporations.
