Latitude Festival
We’re delighted to announce that the Green Party Trade Union Group will be at Latitude Festival (14th-17th July) for the first time in 2016, via the Workers’ Beer Company.

The Workers’ Beer Company was set up by Trade Unionists from the Battersea and Wandsworth Trades Council in 1986, to raise funds for striking miners and other workers in dispute. Today, still run by BWTUC, it operates at Glastonbury and Latitude as well as several Irish festivals and other individual events. It raises funds for Trade Union branches and the wider labour movement – and still prioritises trade union branches in the middle of disputes.

Our allocation is full this year, but if you’d be interested in coming to Latitude with GPTU next year, let us know (and join us if you’re not already a member!).
