The TUSC campaign guide to organising for the general election

Published on

The Trade Unionist and Socialist (TUSC) all-Britain steering committee has published a first edition of a campaign pack, Organising for the General Election,available both as a PDF at https://www.tusc.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/General-Election-Campaign-Pack-July-2023.pdf, and in Word format at https://www.tusc.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/General-Election-Campaign-Pack-July-2023.docx.

This first edition, published in summer 2023, includes guidance on establishing a local TUSC general election planning steering committee, a model letter to local trade union branches to join a delegation to lobby the local Labour prospective parliamentary candidates (PPCs) – and a model letter to PPCs asking for them to receive a delegation – and guidance on the 2024 local elections and the general election.

Updates to the contents and further additions will be made during the year, with inserts already planned on organising debates on Labour’s policy forum outcome, election fund-raising, People’s Budget campaigning in a pre-election year, Labour and the Minimum Service Levels Act, social media campaigning, and suggestions on how to approach the Greens.  So keep checking the website.



TUSC will oppose all cuts to council jobs, services, pay and conditions. Reject increases in council tax, rent and service charges to compensate for government cuts. Vote against the privatisation of council jobs and services.
