Yesterday at GMB Congress we called on members to write to their MP in support of Steve Reed MP's private members bill called Seni's Law (link in comments). Steve recently spoke at regional council about the tragic death of his constituent Seni Lewis who died following restraint by police in a mental hospital. The coroner said Seni had been subject to ‘prolonged disproportionate and unreasonable’ restraint. Steve's bill is vital to reduce deaths in mental health hospitals. Find out from Steve why you should support the campaign here: https://www.gmb-southern.org.uk/news/steve-reed-seni-law

Angela Rayner MP was 16 when she left school with no qualifications. In the twenty years between then and winning her seat in the 2015 general election the union movement has supported her every step of the way, from when she was working in a care home through to mentoring her to be an MP. #TUC150
