Today is polling day - Usdaw asks members to vote for change with Labour

Date: 04 July 2024 Retail trade union Usdaw is asking members to use today's general election to vote for Labour and win a Government that will deliver on our campaign goals and bring about the change workers desperately need.
Polls are open from 7am to 10pm and you can find your polling station at: https://wheredoivote.co.uk

Voters will have to prove their identity by showing photo identification at the polling station, details of valid forms of ID can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/how-to-vote/photo-idyoull-need.

Voters don’t need their polling card to vote, and if they haven’t posted their postal vote, it can be handed in at their polling station.

Paddy Lillis, Usdaw General Secretary says: “Usdaw is urging our members to vote today and asking them to support their Labour candidate to secure a Labour Government that will deliver a new deal for workers, action on retail crime and support for struggling high streets.
“The past 14 years have shown what a Tory Britain looks like: austerity that cruelly targets the most vulnerable people in our communities, relentless attacks on workers’ and trade union rights that create more insecure work, chaotic economics that caused a deeply damaging cost of living crisis, and the effective decriminalisation of shoplifting that blights our struggling retail industry.
“We’ve all had enough. That’s why Usdaw campaigns for a Labour Government. A vote for the Conservatives is not a vote for working people, their families or their communities. It is only the Labour Party that will bring the changes that working people need. We will only get this change if we vote for it – every single vote counts.”
