Shop at a Co-op with your blue membership card? Look out for your ballot and vote #YesToMotion9 🗳️
(as a regular shopper at the co-op, co-operative party member and a proud Labour and Co-op Candidate in the local Council elections next month you can hazard a guess which way I will be voting on motion 9)
Do you regularly
shop at a Co-op using a blue membership card?
If so, that means you are a member of the Co-operative Group – and as
a member, you may receive a voting pack by email or post this week to
take part in their annual members' vote.
Every year, Co-operative Group members vote at their AGM on whether to
continue the partnership between the Co-operative Group and the
Co-operative Party. If you receive a ballot by email or post this week,
vote Yes to Motion
9 to ensure our historic and successful partnership
Unsure if you are
eligible to vote? You can check if you have met the qualifying criteria on the
Co-operative Group's website.
For more than 100
years, the Co-operative Party and the co-operative movement have worked
hand in hand to build a society where power and wealth are shared.
Today, that work still continues through our partnerships with the various
co-operative retail societies.
From standing up for shopworkers to promoting fairtrade and fair tax,
together the Co-operative Party and the Co-operative Group are a
powerful force for positive change. But to keep delivering on behalf of the
co-operative movement, we need your support.
