More Unison branches have submitted motions on Proportional Representation to the National Delegate Conference than on any other single issue.

With a debate about electoral reform taking place across the wider labour movement, Unison now has an opportunity to take a position.

Join Stephen Smellie (Unison NEC, personal capacity) and a panel to hear why First Past the Post doesn’t stack up for trade unions, and why Unison should back PR at this year’s NDC.

  • Lloyd Russell-Moyle, MP for Brighton Kemptown
  • Aileen McLoughlin, Central Bristol Health Branch (personal capacity)
  • James Anthony, Unison NEC (personal capacity)
  • Nancy Platts, Politics for the Many
  • Caroline Osborne, Labour for a New Democracy

Chair: Stephen Smellie, Unison NEC (personal capacity)

Hosted by: Central Bristol Health, Glasgow City, Norfolk County, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, Surrey Unison branches.

Have your branch delegates joined the “Unison for PR” delegate network?

There’s a group of “Unison for PR” delegates who are organising to get Proportional Representation prioritised for debate at the NDC, coordinated by Politics for the Many & Labour for a New Democracy.

If your branch delegates want to help – or just want to hear more about why trade unions would benefit from electoral reform – they can click here to join this delegate network and WhatsApp group.
