To achieve that we need a fairer voting system so the voices of working people are heard clearly in Westminster at all times. A growing number of unions are now backing a proportional voting system (PR) because they can see the current system isn’t working for working people. PR is about ensuring that workers’ rights and pay improve over time. It’s about reversing the trend where FPTP over-represents governments hostile to working people and, as a consequence, sees their rights and conditions eroded over time. Join us in a sociable environment to get your questions answered and hear about how PR can ensure trade unionists always have a seat at the table.
