GENERAL ELECTION ON THURSDAY 12TH DECEMBER 2019!!!
This election is going to give us all the opportunity to remove one of the most right-wing, cruel and opressive Tory Governments in history.
But the election cannot be about just one issue. The rest of society is too important to let that be the case.
This election is your chance to vote to support public services; services that are in crisis.
Hundreds of thousands of jobs have been slashed and budgets have been cut for hospitals, schools, police forces and local authority services.
The last nine years have seen public sector pay shrink by 20%, zero hours contracts rise and the gap between rich and poor soar.
So let’s talk to our friends and family about this election and encourage our colleagues and strangers to get out and vote.
