As part of CND’s campaigning, CND works with many trade union groups to achieve our shared goal of scrapping nuclear weapons. Trade unions are an important part of the fight against Trident replacement and supporting defence jobs diversification. It is no surprise that many trade unions are affiliated with CND. CND regularly attends trade union conferences and works closely with our natural allies to spread the nuclear disarmament message throughout civil society.
UNISON, PCS, RMT, FBU, TSSA, NUT, NUM, the Musicians’ Union and ASLEF are all nationally affiliated to CND. Unite North East, Yorkshire and Humberside regions are also affiliated, as well as regions and branches from across the trade unions, together with trades councils from around the country.
Many other unions have also supported CND’s call to scrap Trident. Why not check out your own union’s policy? Why not affiliate in order to be actively involved in the discussion around nuclear weapons?
