How much might you (or someone you know) lose from the tax credit cuts?
I am writing to you because I am deeply concerned about the impact the Chancellor’s tax credit changes will have on working people like you.
Next Tuesday MPs will be voting on these changes that could cost you – or someone you know – up to £3,000 a year.
The government is rushing through these changes in the hope that there is no time for people to protest. But I am confident that we can make a difference if we take action now.
And I believe we can win. This government only has a majority of 12 and a number of Conservative MPs have indicated to UNISON that they will not be supporting the government.
Act now to help us win
I have today written to every MP demanding that they vote against the cuts – so that they are in no doubt that UNISON will stand up for its members. You can reinforce that message by writing to your MP too.
Next Tuesday MPs will be voting on these changes that could cost you up to £3,000 a year.
I am determined to fight these proposals because UNISON’s job is to defend you against unfair attacks like this.
