The NSSN was initiated by the RMT and their former general secretary the late Bob Crow in 2006. Nine national unions – RMT, CWU, NUM, POA, NUJ, BFAWU, NAPO, FBU and Unite – officially support our campaigning work, as well as many union branches, shop stewards committees and trades councils.

The NSSN has played a role with others in TUC Congress delegates’ decision to endorse coordinated action, and we have worked to keep this strategy in profile. After even more Tory cuts it’s not only practical but necessary. Our other campaigning work involves supporting workers in struggle, and those victimised for the “crime” of defending their members’ from the employers’ brutal cuts.

We also attract young people wanting to fight back against zero-hour contracts and poverty pay, but who have, as yet, no experience of trade unions. We proudly fight for a £15/hr minimum wage.

We have a website, Facebook group, twitter account, and a regular weekly e-bulletin. All are available to trade unionists and their organisations to publicise their disputes, events etc. Please feel free to use these platforms. Invitations to speak at your union meetings are also welcome.

How much can you donate? Affiliate and/or take out an individual or collective standing order

Affiliation to the NSSN is £50. Can your union stump up a big donation? One conference alone costs thousands to organise. Individuals and branches can also take out regular standing orders of a few pounds every month to ‘National Shop Stewards Network’. Contact us for details.

Looking forward to your positive response and in solidarity
