Parliamentary Campaigning

Working with MPs and MEPs

Unite members campaign on a range of issues – from defending rights at work threatened by recent legislation and campaigning against blacklisting to briefing decision makers on areas of the union’s expertise for example, aerospace and shipbuilding, civil aviation and health.

The union’s political department assists members’ campaigns by providing support to advance them in Westminster and European Parliaments.

Work with politicians in the devolved administrations is undertaken by the union in those nations and regions.

Take a no deal Brexit off the table

Millions of livelihoods and the future of manufacturing communities across the UK are hanging in the balance. The game of playing roulette with people’s lives needs to end. A no-deal Brexit needs to be taken off the table and a deal secured which ensures an on-going customs arrangement and tariff free, frictionless trade secured."
