FOR YORKSHIRE AND THE HUMBER
I’m Jawad, and I’m standing to be your Yorkshire and Humber Rep on Young Labour’s national committee to build an empowered, campaigning, socialist youth wing.
During my time on Young Labour’s committee as GMB Rep I have organised motions and actions in solidarity with workers in dispute – from workplaces such as British Gas to campaigns like Wages Not Based on Ages. Through the youth section of my union, I have been active on picket lines, recruited young people into the union and fought for policies that will help young workers.
I will use this alongside my experience as Youth Officer for GMB Brighouse General Branch and Chair of GMB Yorkshire Young Members, to establish a regional group of young members. Having campaigned and organised with young members across our region for over 7 years, I understand the importance of this.
Young members aren’t just canvassers for the Party. We need to be supported with access to political education, skills and resources; helping us understand the history of our movement and how we can organise to build socialism in our lifetime.
I’m proud to be standing with the support of Momentum and trade unionists to fight for a socialist future.
