DATE: Saturday 5 March 12 noon - 3 pm
VENUE: Committee Rooms 3 & 4, Birmingham Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham B1 1BB
SPEAKER: Len McCluskey
Please make every effort to attend our United Left AGM at this crucial time in our history.
We are facing the most abominable attack on our trade union and Labour rights in the name of the Trade Union Reform Bill - currently in the House of Lords. Not only will it undermine our right to strike and allow unprecedented state interference in the internal affairs of trade unions, it is also designed to starve the Labour Party of union funds.
Government "short money" to the Opposition is also being cut and Boundary Commission changes to constituencies and individual voter registration not to mention the so-called Lobbying Act are all designed to cut support for Labour.
The government's austerity spending cuts and free enterprise ideology is in full swing and we need a strong left visionary trade union like never before.
Are we in for that fight? Our United Left AGM is a unique opportunity for left activists in UNITE to discuss the challenges ahead and how we can ensure our union is best placed to meet them.
