New West Country Workers magazine out now

West Country Workers magazine

This publication looks at employment relations in the South West and why the trade union bill is unnecessary. It showcases the positive work carried out by unions. It charts the strength – and breadth – of opposition to the bill and reveals it for what it is: an outrageous attack on unions and our ability to raise funds and organise in workplaces. It is unfair, unnecessary, unwanted and we call on people to join our campaign against it. Download magazine (pdf)
