Labour is the only party that can and will deliver for Usdaw members.
Our role as a trade union is to make things better for our members. Mostly we do that through negotiating with employers, but sometimes we need politics to:
- Create a level playing-field for negotiating with employers.
- Introduce fair minimum standards, eg the minimum wage, four weeks' paid holiday, longer maternity leave, equal rights for part-timers.
- Improve our members' lives in other ways – through better pensions and benefits, and improving schools and health services.
