This document sets out voting and engagement guidelines for trade union funds with investments in equities to use at company AGMs.

The new guidelines have been drawn up to ensure that corporate governance policies that unions have long been critical of - all-male boards, excessive director pay and bonus packages, and the non-advertisement of new director positions - will be challenged by union voting at company AGMs.
