National Labour Link
Promoting UNISON in Labour
The unions helped to form the Labour party and are important stakeholders in the party along with its individual members. Most of the UNISON Labour Link money pays for the affiliation of our UNISON Labour Link members to the Labour party at branch, constituency, regional and national level. It means you can vote in Labour party elections, such as the election for the leader of the party and elections in Wales and Scotland.
How does Labour Link work?
UNISON lobbies the government and the Labour party through the policy forum process, at party conferences, in the constituencies and through the UNISON group of MPs at Westminister. UNISON Labour Link branch officers, national staff and lay members work closely with UNISON's different service groups, regions and other parts of UNISON to get our members concerns onto the Labour agenda and into government policy
