We now need to have the email addresses for the target government or employer (separated by commas). Please include an email address for the union as well.

We will be telling tens of thousands of trade unionists to write to these addresses, and if messages bounce or fail, we get a very large number of complaints - which undermines people's trust in what we are doing. Please make sure that the union's email address is capable of receiving thousands of messages. If not, have the union set up an address which is (e.g., on web based email systems such as Gmail). Target email addresses:

We also need the following - send separately to

  • A choice of high-quality photos (2 or 3) to illustrate the campaign and the mass mailing.
