UNISONActive is produced by UNISON activists for UNISON activists. Bringing news, briefings and events from a progressive left perspective.
It is not an official UNISON blog. But it is is written, collated and edited by a range of UNISON activists who are committed to the union's objectives. They come from differing branches, backgrounds and opinions, sharing a commitment to trade unionism, collectivism, international solidarity - supporting a trade union that is committed to a fundamental change in society and that puts the interests and values of working people at its heart, working through the democratic process of society.
Although some posts will be signed, UNISONActive will be about ideas, discussion and information, not personality politics. A place sometimes to test and develop views with the aim of raising debate and improving lay discussion and organisation.
As such, UNISONActive will be eclectic, sarcastic, critical, cynical - probably contradictory - but hopefully informative. We believe that the left needs real debate particularly in these changing political times and hope to reflect that as the site develops.
