Shadow Labour Minister Alison Seabeck MP has agreed to be our keynote speaker at the Annual meeting of UNISON Housing Association Labour Link (APF).
This will take place on Wednesday 7 September 2011 at Committee room 5 in the House of Commons - 6pm to 8pm.
We are planning to have other political and UNISON speakers present and encourage members to contribute to the "Refounding Labour" debate, particularly of course on Housing issues.
Finishing off with a Social in a local Westminster hostelry (venue tbc).
Last year we had a very successful event with then Labour Housing Minster, John Healey MP.
This year branch members, particularly those in Care and Support are facing massive ideological cuts in services and unprecedented attacks on pensions, terms and conditions. We must stop the rogue employers who are undercutting decent employers in order to win contracts that put vulnerable residents at risk of abuse. We must protect our residents and ourselves. We have to campaign against Boris and Cameron and work for a Labour Mayor for London in 2012 and the return of a Labour Government. ASAP.
This meeting is open to all branch members who support the UNISON Labour Link political fund (over a 1,000 members in our branch alone). This will be by invite and RSVP only. I will be sending invites out soon but contact me now to reserve a place. (view my profile left)
