Do you feel workers are having a raw deal just now? Our jobs, wages and terms and conditions are under attack. Our cost of living is rising. That our MPs just don’t not seem to get it. Do you know people who voted Labour in 1997 but are among the 5 million who stopped? Or are you one of them? You may be just the person we need. We need workers’ representatives in parliament. People with real experience of life. All the unions affiliated to the Labour Party have joined together to provide training for those who want to make a difference. Take a look at this link. That could be you.
