Delegates from UNISON South West took part in the Labour Link forum 2017, debating policy, hearing from Labour MPs, and reviewing UNISON’s political fund arrangements in light of the Trade Union Act.
Held on 6 and 7 July in Liverpool, the forum brought together representatives of UNISON members who pay into the Affiliated Political Fund, the part of the union that co-ordinates our work with the Labour Party.
Three motions were spoken for by delegates from the South West:
- Our rights post-Brexit – Neil Guild
- Local accountability for education – Belinda Burton
- Industrial democracy – Fraser Amos
Several other delegates made contributions to motions including cuts to the police and justice service, supporting WASPI women, and Black representation in politics.
