The crew at Unite Union are organising a victory party for the UK election from 2pm (or earlier) when official results will start coming in.
Myself, Joe Carolan and two Unite Union McDonald’s delegates from Unite NZ met many MP’s sponsored by Unite the Union and the Bakers Union in the UK parliament when we visited last year. They were very keen to hear about our victory over zero-hour contracts and how we organise – including the right of access. Both issues are part of the Labour party manifesto.
The future Chancellor of the Exchequer John McDonnell and myself spoke at a seminar on organising the unorganised in the UK which can be viewed here.
