From the Chartists pushing for universal suffrage, to the Scottish TUC’s role campaigning for a Scottish Parliament, trade unions have often been at the forefront of demands for a democracy that puts working people at the centre.

Join Politics for the Many, the trade union campaign for political reform, to discuss how trade unions can help build a better democracy. Featuring Unite’s Howard Beckett, PCS’s Lynn Henderson and the Electoral Reform Society’s Jess Garland.
