This is an open format discussion meeting on recent issues around trade unions – all welcome. Some issues and ideas to be discussed are:

Links with local Unions – how can we improve the local activist network to include trade unions.
Community organising – a look at Unite’s idea for community union membership – see this article in Red Pepper magazine for some background.
