We live in expensive and poor quality homes. We struggle on low pay. We see people sleeping on our streets. We watch as food bank queues grow.
It is us, the nurses, the shop workers, drivers, carers, parents that truly power society and produce the country’s wealth. Yet it is our housing that’s not good enough, our services and jobs that are cut.
Trade unions in decades before have brought together workers to fight and win. As a community union, we bring together all kinds of people up and down the country to do the same, on all the issues that matter to us.
ACORN members believe we deserve good housing, good jobs, and good public services. We believe a better country is possible if we unite together. Alone our problems seem insurmountable, but together, we share the burden on thousands of shoulders - and together, we can win. Join us today.
