Dear Unite members
You know that unions won paid holidays, fought for safe workplaces and day in, day out strive to make working life better in this country.
But millions of our friends and colleagues who are not in a union may not appreciate this.
#heartunions week is an opportunity to shout about the great things you and your union achieve together so please get involved. You can find out more here www.unitetheunion.org/heartunite
They probably don’t know either that the Tory government is attacking the very trade unions that have done so much to bring progress to these isles.
With anti-union legislation rushing through parliament there has never been a more important time to speak up for your union – and out about this government.
If the Tories get their way, UK workers will be among the easiest to exploit in the western world.
That is why I urge you to do all you can to make #heartunions a success.
There are lots of easy ways to take part – from sharing your selfie to lobbying your MP.
Just click here to find out how www.unitetheunion.org/heartunite
Please do get involved.
With best wishes
Len (McCluskey: General Secretary of Unite)
