ONLINE EVENT FOR CWU BRANCHES – NINA TURNER
We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday 28th September at 6:30pm, the CWU will be hosting an online discussion between General Secretary Dave Ward and the US politician Nina Turner. Branches and representatives will also have the chance to put questions directly to Nina.
The CWU has been instrumental in organising Nina’s first official visit to Britain, where she will visit Labour Party conference and speak at the Tribune Rally on Monday 27th. Nina has agreed to undertake a number of CWU engagements and we felt it was important for Branches to have the opportunity to engage directly with such a high profile figure.
Nina has served as a City Councillor and a State Senator in her home state of Ohio and was a senior national figure in both of the Bernie Sanders presidential nomination campaigns.
She is also the leader of Our Revolution, a grassroots organisation campaigning to overturn corporate influence in American politics and to put more trade unionists and progressives into national political positions.
As a union, we are very happy that as a result of our work with Tribune, members will have an exclusive opportunity to engage with one of America’s most important progressive figures.
We hope it will be a unique and inspiring opportunity for members and branches to engage with someone who has been vital in fighting for a pro-working class agenda in America.
