Coalition Fighting Unfair Pay


Coalition Fighting Unfair Pay

Dear Comrade,

I am writing to remind you know that the Coalition Fighting Unfair Pay (COFUP!) will be launched in Committee Room 9, House of Commons at 7pm on Tuesday 24th July.

COFUP! has been launched by the Socialist Youth Network, the youth wing of the Labour Representation Committee. SYN is a coalition of young Labour party members and trade unionists fighting for socialism in the Labour party.

The main aims of COFUP are to campaign for Labour councils to include a living wage without exemptions as part of their worker procurement contracts and for the Labour party to adopt a living wage for all workers regardless of age as its official policy at Conference.

The speakers at the rally include Manuel Cortes (Deputy General Secretary of TSSA), Cllr. Miranda Grell, John McDonnell MP, Rory MacQueen (GMB), Angela Molloy (Regional Industrial Officer for T&G Region 1), Heenal Rajani (UNISON), Sam Tarry (Compass Youth) and Marsha-Jane Thompson (Co-Chair of SYN).

The event is open to all and I hope that you will be able to attend. Please also spread the word!

Finally, an Early Day Motion has been tabled in Parliament in support of the campaign. EDM 1876 has now been signed by 39 MPs. If you have a local Labour MP, I hope you will consider writing to them to ask for their support.

In solidarity,

Owen Jones

Co-Chair of the Socialist Youth Network
