The Tories aren’t content with handing out £3.5 billion in contracts to their donors and pals; it’s far worse than that. They are systematically dismantling the checks and balances intended to hold them to account.

Last week we heard from Cat Smith MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Young People and Democracy and the Director of Hope not Hate Nick Lowles on how the Elections Bill will fundamentally reshape our democracy. If you missed our national webinar on the Elections Bill, you can watch it on our YouTube channel.

Our Elections Bill webinar and petition are the first steps in a much bigger campaign. We’ve got so much more planned, and we want you to be part of it. So here are three things you can do to help drive the campaign forward.

1) Record a video clip of yourself talking about why having a strong trade union voice is important in our electoral process. Send it back to us on campaigns@labourunions.org.uk, and we’ll add your voice to the campaign!  Have a look at this example. Don’t worry, we’ll do all the subtitling and editing for you!

2) Write to the press about why the Elections Bill is bad for our democracy. Check out a template for you to personalise here: LabourUnions.org.uk/WriteforYourRights 

3) Share even more of our social media assets. They are available to download from our website here: LabourUnions.org.uk/SocialMediaAssets

Let’s make conservative MPs in marginal seats think twice and engage with the amendment process and show the government that we’ll defend our democracy.
