    Hey, Comrades – I am speaking to the Union motion at Unite Community, Camden on Wed 13th. June. I would welcome any input that you can give me. Thanking you in advance.

  • Alice Bondi says:

    My branch voted to affiliate last night – who do we send the motion to and to whom/what account do we pay our affiliation fee? Also, what does affiliation give us as a branch? I don’t mean we’re trying to get goodies out of it, but I need to explain how it benefits the members beyond feeling good!

    This evening we voted to affiliate Leabridge Ward LP (Clapton, London E5) to JVL! The secretary of the ward will follow this through.
