Since our launch on May Day we have tried to bring a trade union message utilising social media and online campaigning on a daily basis.
As we know, nothing can ever replace on the ground organising but social media and online campaigning can play a very important role in generating and growing support. In a few short months, USi has been able to nurture thousands upon thousands of people who are interested in what we have got to say and importantly how we say it. We try to be where people are in order to communicate and build support around the world for trade union objectives.
We continue to drive forward with our priority campaigns to help unionise 7,000 workers in the brick kiln industry in India; to show meaningful solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Greece who are undergoing an attack not only on their working conditions but on society as a whole, and, to promote the work of domestic workers networks to ensure that we secure justice for some of the most vulnerable workers in our country.
More trade unions are supporting our efforts with the Public and Commercial Services union being the latest. But we also want to build meaningful relationships with local union branches and individual union members. To view all our supporters please click here.
That’s why we are asking you to consider individually donating to USi. For just £5 a year as an individual you can affiliate to help us connect workers across continents, fight austerity and build union power on the ground by setting up a one-off direct debit here. You can find out more about the campaigns we have launched and are supporting around the world here.
Thanks for your ongoing support.
USi Project Director
