The Political levy and our Political Fund

Under trade union law, our political work is funded through a separate levy to our membership subscription. This political levy is 20 pence per week and goes into a designated political fund which is administered by the union’s Political Fund Management Committee.

The levy is optional – if you want to opt in or opt out of paying it please contact politics@cwu.org and include your postal address or membership number.

Branches and Regions both receive a share of the levy to fund their political work on our key priorities. Please contact them to find out more about the union’s political work in your area.
