The Co-op and the Co-operative Party: 100 years of pioneering the future

Dear Friend,
Starting from next week, eligible members of the Co-operative Group ('the Co-op') will begin receiving their ballots for this year’s AGM, by post or email.

Once again, Co-op members will vote on continuing the partnership between the Co-op and the Co-operative Party – can you help us spread the word?

Here are two ways you can help:
  1. If you are eligible to vote (or think you might be), pledge your vote here, so we know we can count on your support
  2. If you are ineligible, or not a member of the Co-op, help us spread the word:
When a group of tradesmen banded together 150 years ago to create the World’s first co-op, they didn’t stop at ethical business. Their ambition was even greater: to transform society itself.
Co-operation is, and has always been, political. Via the shopping basket or the ballot, the savings account or on the street, co-operators have always shaped and challenged the world in which we live. But there’s so much still to do – let’s vote once again to keep it going.

Yours in co-operation,
Claire McCarthy
General Secretary
The Co-operative Party
