HPC at party conferences

Come to our events at Labour and Conservative Party conferences

We will be hosting fringe events at both the Labour and Conservative party conferences over the next fortnight! With opinion polls repeatedly demonstrating the public’s frustration with a system they perceive to work in the interests of those at the top at the expense of the wider workforce, it is vital that both parties develop proposals for a fairer economy that delivers more proportionate rewards for all. Our sessions, organised in partnership with the Prospect trade union, will look at identifying ways that they can do so. Any HPC supporters attending the conferences in Liverpool and Birmingham are welcome to attend (the Labour event is outside the conference secure zone and thus does not require a conference pass). Full details are as follows
