What is role of the Right to Work Campaign?

We are a national campaign and for the last couple of years we’ve been the people in the room arguing for a combination of strikes, direct action and occupations as a means of defending public services, the welfare state, stopping the cuts and fighting job losses. We’ve said time and time again it’s not our crisis and we won’t pay for it.

We seek to give the local and national picture a real ‘edge’ in terms of resistance but also developing and offering alternative policies for job creation and a sustainable and just economy.

To that aim we seek to unite those in and out of work, students, pensioners and all those reliant on the NHS and public services in this ‘age of austerity.’

We have established roots in many organisations and are made up of affiliated union branches and campaign groups. All of our events have been backed by unions, anti-cuts groups and campaigning organisations.

We are about working and engaging with those workers in the front line and building greater alliances wit those affected by attacks on our jobs, services, pensions and living standards in order to pay a deficit created by the casino economics of bankers.

Organisation

Right to Work has a Steering Committee made up of representatives elected at conference, and representatives of affiliated organisations. The Steering Committee elects an Officers Group which is responsible for the day to day running of Right to Work.

The elected National Secretary is Paul Brandon.
