In early August, the UNISON Labour Link committee will be meeting to discuss their nomination for leader of the Labour Party.
In past leadership elections they have made a nomination, looking at which candidate most closely reflects the policy priorities for UNISON members and our public services and who has the ability to lead the Labour Party to election success and into government so that our agenda can be put into practice.
To help the Labour Link committee decide whether to nominate and who to nominate, they are canvassing views from all UNISON members opted into the UNISON Affiliated Political Fund (APF), the fund that supports the union’s campaign work inside the Labour Party.
A personalised link is also being emailed to all APF payers. The link above requires a member to verify themselves – the survey ensures only one vote per member and only APF payers are allowed to participate.
Furthermore an online tool that allows members to check whether they are eligible to become an affiliated supporter of the Labour Party (and advise why if not) is also now live.
The tool will also allow you to register to become an affiliated supporter of the Labour Party if eligible and check and update email and other contact details if necessary.
