Model Motion: Affiliate to Fuel Poverty Action
This Trade Union / branch notes that Fuel Poverty Action (FPA) has been a vocal and dynamic campaign group for those suffering fuel poverty. It has run a campaign for ‘Safe Cladding and Insulation Now’ and energy-efficient housing, has agitated to raise awareness of problems with district heating systems, and has fought for fair pricing so energy does not cost more for people who have less.
The group has already gained the support of some trade unions including BFAWU, the FBU, NEU, and PCS, from branches of UNISON and Unite the Union, and from the TUC LESE Pensioners Network. It continues to campaign jointly with both the Unite Housing Workers Branch (LE1111), and the Social Housing Action Campaign (SHAC). See note (1) below.
This Trade Union / branch further notes that FPA has only a small, dedicated team of people, mostly volunteers, and is seeking support for future campaigning. Support from the trade union movement through regular donations of whatever size will do wonders to sustain their vital work.
This Trade Union / branch therefore agrees to affiliate as a body to FPA (as per note (2) below), and encourages our members to sign up for a monthly donation as an individual by emailing the information to our membership list. See note (3) below.
