The future of the political fund – have your say

UNISON is currently running a consultation on the political fund, don’t miss the chance to have your say. 

UNISON speaking up for public services placards tied to railing

The Trade Union Act means all new members will be required to opt-in to the political fund, rather than have the choice to opt out, which is currently the case.

This second round consultation invites comments on where the union has got to in developing a system that complies with the Act whilst also maintaining our historic link with the Labour party, preserving our campaign capacity and protecting the union’s income.

All branches, regions and members are invited to respond by the closing date of 12 January 2018.
