Why our Branch Secretary is standing for UNISON’s National Executive Council:
This year’s elections are your chance to vote for a new leadership team that will get on with the job, work in partnership with our elected General Secretary and stay focused on winning for all UNISON members and our public services. If elected, we will:
Put London First – we will represent every one of the 130,000 UNISON members across London, we aren’t part of any faction or backed by any political group, we still have day jobs in the public sector and came together because we care about UNISON members. We will also make sure London members get representation, legal advice and support from UNISON when they need it most.
Stand United and Reject Division – We will work with, and support, Christina McAnea, the elected General Secretary to deliver for all members. We need a Labour government and to ensure UNISON values are at its heart.
Make sure everyone has a voice in UNISON – UNISON Greater London has over 80% Women and over 40% Black members with a diverse workforce including nurses, cleaners, teaching assistants, librarians, administrators, refuse workers and so many more. The NEC should be led by people who represent all members.
Fight Discrimination and put Equality at the heart of UNISON- No-one should ever experience racism, sexism, homophobia, disability or any other form of discrimination. From menopause policies to tackling the ethnicity pay gap, from our trans ally campaign to make better reasonable adjustments, we can’t just talk, we have to act now.
Tackle the Cost of Living Crisis – Londoners are hurting more than most, we have the highest rent, childcare and travel costs, we’re priced out of living in the boroughs and communities that we work in. We have to make sure every public sector worker gets a pay rise and that the public sector is properly funded and respected for the work we do.
