Our political work

Politics matters to trade unionists as all the rights and protections we value so dearly were achieved through political action. From the minimum wage to the working week directive, to equal pay and maternity leave, we are proudly political and everything we have been able to accomplish. 

Find out more about our political work below and how you can get involved.
