UNISON Labour Link – What’s that all about?
To take part in any political activity unions have to maintain a political fund - and in UNISON you can choose whether to pay a part of your subscriptions into the Labour Link (the affiliated political fund), the general political fund (GPF), both, or neither.
Labour Link works directly within the Labour Party to take UNISON’s policies into the heart of the party. We work at local and national level and have a network of Labour Link officers at branch, regional and national levels who work together with other affiliated unions to promote our agenda.
Our Branch is affiliated to all the local Constituency Labour Parties, and has delegates to many of them. Through Constituency Labour Parties we also send delegates to the Sheffield District Labour Party – the body which organises campaigning across the city for the Labour Party.
We have a Branch Labour Link Committee which meets regularly to co-ordinate our work. This is open to any Branch member who pay’s into the Labour Link (the affiliated political fund); although to participate fully in all aspects of our work you will need to be a member of the Labour Party.
Forthcoming meetings are on the following dates in the Branch Office all starting at 4pm –
- Tuesday July 22nd
- Tuesday September 16th
- Tuesday October 21st
- Tuesday November 18th
- Tuesday December 16th
If you are interested in attending these meetings please contact the Branch Office on 2736307, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will then get back to you as soon as possible.
