Unite on the need for more working people in parliament

Unite on the need for more working people in parliament

03 September 2014

"We need more working people in parliament – people who understand the daily realities of living under this coalition government who have spent the last four years cutting the living standards of millions of people. What we need less of are the bankers' friends who frankly don’t give a damn about ordinary people and their struggles to keep their heads above water.

It’s no surprise that with over 6 million trade union members across the UK who make up 13 per cent of the British electorate, that some of these trade union members will be selected to stand for parliament."
