CWU POLITICAL VIDEO / LOCAL ELECTIONS 2nd MAY 2019
The purpose of this LTB is make branches aware of a political video that has been produced by the CWU Communications department and has been put online yesterday. The video is on our Twitter and Facebook profiles and can be seen via the following links:
The video underlines the pressure we know our members and people across the country are under after nine years of austerity and Tory-led government and encourages people to vote Labour. While this is a general message we want to promote, we have timed it to coincide with the local elections being held in parts of England on 2nd May.
The video features a CWU member and is a powerful message about the state of the country. It demonstrates again how the CWU is leading the way online in the trade union movement and doing more to engage and talk to our members politically. We would urge branches to share it widely on their own social media channels.
Finally, we have a number of members who are standing for Labour in the forthcoming local elections and we would urge branches and members to get involved and support them in campaigning. More generally, for all branches and members in parts of England where local elections are taking place, we would ask you to support local Labour campaign activities and encourage members to go out and vote Labour.
Any further enquiries regarding this LTB should be addressed to the General Secretary’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting the reference LTB 242/19.
