Jeremy Corbyn’s middle class supporters (with their good jobs and generous pensions) will not suffer when he leads Labour to defeat at the next General Election.  Corbyn and his supporters will be able to ride out five long years of a Tory Government lead by Theresa May.  Will you?

Standard
Of the 2.4 million trades union levy payers in 2015, only around 140,000 bothered to register to vote in the Labour leadership election in 2015.  Less than half of that 140,000 actually voted in the leadership election in which Jeremy Corbyn was elected Labour leader.

It is free for trades union levy payers to register.  There is no requirement to pay £25.

Owen Smith’s 25 point plan to improve workers’ rights include:

  • Introduce Modern Wages Councils to cover 9 million workers, many of them women. in Hospitality, Retail and Social Care
  • New Equal Pay legislation to close the gender pay gap
  • Employment rights from day one
  • Outlaw Zero-hours contracts
  • and strengthen enforcement of National Living Wage.

If your friends and family missed out on registering as a Labour supporter last week they might still be eligible to vote in the Labour leadership election if they’re a member of an affiliated trade union and have been since January 12th 2016.
