UNISON NI 2019 European Election Manifesto

Do you want to ask the candidates where they stand on the issues for the European Parliament elections?

On May 23rd our members go to the polls again, this time to vote in elections for the European Parliament. This election comes at a critical time for Northern Ireland, with no Assembly or Executive in place, the peace process in a fragile position and real uncertainty surrounding the process of exiting the EU.

UNISON NI has developed a manifesto for this election that sets out the key concerns of our members across a range of areas in relation to the UK exit from the EU, including the impact on the economy, on our rights, the peace process, and on migrant workers.

If you want to know where the various candidates stand on these issues when they are looking for your vote in the coming days you can use the manifesto as your guide to the key questions to ask them all.

You can read the full manifesto here.

Hard copies are available in the Regional Office and via your branch.
