We need a politics for the many, not the few

Trade unions have often been at the forefront of demands for a better democracy.

Today, there is a new democratic frontier for trade unions in Britain: reforming Westminster’s creaking establishment. From a broken voting system, to an unelected House of Lords and denying 16 and 17-year-olds the vote, Parliament is skewed towards a privileged few. It’s time to change that.

Trade unions exist for workers to stand up against concentrations of power and wealth. We know that political inequality leads to economic inequality: if working people don’t have a voice, it’s inevitable that our economy will deny them a voice too.

We are proud to launch the trade union movement for political reform – to build a politics for the many, not the few:
