This election matters. The world will be a very different place for working people over the next few years depending who wins.

Boris Johnson would slash workers rights, flog off the NHS and continue to be on the side of his millionnare mates.

Labour would invest in care, our NHS, local government and in revitalising our manufacturing sector.

Why working people should vote Labour

 

GMB helped found the Labour Party in 1900 and has campaigned for Labour governments at all levels ever since. Labour is the only party committed to putting rights, equality and power in the hands of working people. And there's a lot to do after nearly a decade of Conservative governments wedded to austerity and privatisation policies which have disadvantaged the most vulnerable in society, cut public services and the pay of those who work in them in real terms, and failed to defend our manufacturing jobs and the communities that rely on them.

Below are some of the many reasons why now more than ever working people need a Labour Government, and the difference you could make by voting for Labour this General Election. 

 

For better pay

GMB have long campaigned that people should be paid enough to live off and of the major Parties, Labour is the only one which has committed to delivering to paying a decent, fair wage of £10 an hour.

 

To end the housing crisis

Whether you are renting or want to own your own home, Labour are committed to tackling the housing crisis. They will build over a million new homes in five years, with at least half a million council homes. Labour will also introduce rent controls on those ever soaring lettings costs.

 

For stronger workplace rights

We have all seen the harsh reality of insecure work, whether it is ASOS, Sports Direct or Uber - this is crippling workers, families and our economy. Labour are the only major party giving a guarantee of employment rights from day one of work and to end exploitative zero hours contracts. 

 

To save our NHS

We have at some stage all have needed our local hospital or doctor. Labour is the Party of the NHS - they will end health service privatisation, put a stop to Conservative hospital closures and bring services into a secure, publicly-provided NHS - and ensure parity for mental health services.

 

For our childrens' future

As well as providing free school meals for all primary school children Labour will bring progressive restoration of free education for all; and guarantee quality apprenticeships and adult skills training.

 

For the many, not the privileged few

We all pay our fair taxes and it is about time that those at the top did as well. Labour will build a progressive tax system so that wealth and the highest earners are fairly taxed, shrinking the gap between the highest and the lowest paid.

 

For better public transport

Any of us who have used a train or a bus recently will know that it is expensive and increasingly unreliable - In a move that that is popular across all political parties, Labour will bring trains into public ownership and extend public control over our bus networks. Making our transport system less about profit for foreign owned businesses and more about delivering a reliable service for everyone who needs to travel.
