A Future Worth Fighting For

‘A Future Worth Fighting For’ Sign the workers charter at http://www.tuleftforum.com/workers-charter/ and show support for a radical programme of workers rights for Ireland, north and south. #WorkersFuture

Trade Union Left Forum Friends and Supporters,

Please sign the Workers Charter A Future Worth Fighting For at http://www.tuleftforum.com/workers-charter/

Why have we launched this?

We want to show there is widespread member support across unions for a radical programme of workers rights in Ireland. We want to put pressure on unions and political parties to adopt this programme. While each demand itself is inherently winnable with popular support, achieved together, it would result in a significant shift in the balance of power in Ireland away from big business and toward working people.

What can you do?

Sign the charter and share it. By doing this you are showing public support for the demands in the charter and for a future worth fighting for. Share it with friends and colleagues and ask them to sign and share it too. Look out for further actions and meetings and participate as we develop this campaign.

What are the next steps in the campaign?

First step is to win support for the charter from trade unionists across the country. We will then step up efforts at lobbying unions and political parties. We hope this charter can also inspire activists to put forward motions to conferences and seek democratic support within their own unions for the whole charter or elements of it.

Please sign the charter here http://www.tuleftforum.com/workers-charter/


Abortion as a Workplace Issue published today!

A ground-breaking report into trade unionists’ attitudes to abortion throughout Ireland, North and South, was launched this morning. Abortion as a Workplace Issue is based on a quantitative and qualitative survey commissioned by trade unions Unite the Union, Republic of Ireland, Unison, Mandate, CWU and GMB, as well as Alliance for Choice (Northern Ireland) and the Trade Union Campaign to Repeal the 8th Amendment (Republic of Ireland). The research was conducted by Ulster University and analyses responses from over 3,000 trade union members.

The Homeless Period

Access to sanitary products, tampons and pads for women who are homeless, reliant on food banks or in emergency accommodation is rarely discussed but it is a very important issue.
