May 2018 Broadside – Recommended SOC1 Attitudes

As always, we’ll be holding a meeting for Left Unity members only at 745pm on Sunday 20th May at the Jurys

Following the closed meeting, we’ll be holding the annual R&C Left Unity social at 9pm on Sunday 20th May at the Jurys Inn, Brighton. As we’ve done for the last couple of years, we’re holding a pub quiz along with a raffle. If you would like to donate a prize, please let a member of the Steering Committee know. This meeting will be
open to non-members so please feel free to bring others along.

We look forward to seeing you all there.


Just a brief note to say thanks to everyone who voted for LU in the elections. We’re happy to say that we did well in the elections and also feel that conference went well. We’ll put out a proper post-conference report shortly but don’t want to dwell too much on it as we all have a hell of a lot of work to do this year, particularly over BoF. We’ll be in touch with everyone shortly to give our thoughts on what we do going forward, but hope that all those who attended conference had a good time, that we’ll already to take the fight-back to the employer and again, to say thanks for supporting LU.
