HeartUnions week is all about building a stronger movement. The week is an opportunity to celebrate the good work unions do in workplaces across the country.

Unions do fantastic work - they play a vital role in ensuring working people have the rights they deserve at work, as well as representing workers who have issues in their workplaces.

I'm proud to be a member of Unite the Union and liaise very closely with many of their officers. This close relationship means I can deal with many of the workplace issues within my constituency and ensure we have a balanced economy between the employer and the employee.
