Punching above our weight

UNISON was the UK's top political donor in the fourth quarter of 2014! Electoral Commission data published last week confirms that a total of £1,384,289 was donated to the Labour Party from our affiliated political fund. The timing reflecting UNISON's determination to securing a change of government in the upcoming general election. With just over one third of UNISON members paying a political fund contribution to Labour (substantially fewer than Unite and GMB) this level of support to the Labour Party is unparalleled.
