5.4% Campaign update

You are here

The first stage of our  campaign has now very nearly reached its objective of attaining  the 1000 names  total required on our petition. Once we finally get to this figure in the next couple of weeks I can then approach Shropshire Council with a request to address full council with our aims and objectives.

To date we have received replies to our initial letters to councillors from The Conservative Group and The Liberal Group, many of whom are supporting the campaign however, it is extremely disappointing to report that not one Labour Councillor has either acknowledged nor responded to our letters. Frankly I find that unacceptable ( as a union we are affiliated to The Labour Party ) and as such i have written to the secretary of the local Labour Party asking for a response and outlining our disappointment. ( attachment below) 

Once we have news to report I shall be contacting all members with an update  and next steps along the campaign path.
