our structure

We are organised from the bottom up. We build branches - usually in a neighbourhood - where people organise to take action quickly on local issues. These branches elect their leadership, a committee who is accountable to local members but also to the wider vision of the union. When there are enough local branches in a town or region, they form a city or regional forum to coordinate their campaigns and actions between the branches. 

Branches work together on national campaigns, through the national forum. The National Committee, which is composed of tenants elected by the annual general meeting as well as co-opted members, is  legally responsible for the organisation and ensures that the organisation respects its values, the strategic directions given by its members and that it has good governance. 

We have active branches across the country. You can check out the events near you and get in touch if you want to build you own branch.
