Tory stopped Crawley seeing the Unite union ad campaign

A UNION targeted a staunch conservative electorate with its new campaign to push for change in workers’ rights.

Banners advertising the slogan ‘The economy isn’t working’ from the Unite union have been seen in Crawley for the past two Saturdays.

It is a response to politicians’ “inaction” and aims to unite workers and secure a wage increase.

“Our economy does not work for workers, it only works for British corporations and their wealthy supporters,” said Unite general secretary Sharon Graham.

“It’s time for workers and communities to stand up. It is time we built a movement for real change, based on unity of the workplace with local communities – the people power of the working class.”

The union’s campaign will target “heartland communities” and “advance rather than comment on the political agenda”.

Crawley has had a Tory MP in Henry Smith since 2010 – he won by 8,360 votes in the 2019 general election.

The union said profits in Britain’s top companies rose 47 per cent, while forecasting workers’ real wages “could see their biggest fall in 100 years”.

“This situation can no longer exist without a sustained, permanent challenge,” it said.

“Only a rebirth of trade unionism, which becomes the lifeblood of local communities, can help drive this change.”

Other cities including Glasgow and Grimsby have also been included in the launch.
