The Prospect pledge campaign

We are asking Prospect members across the UK to send 'Pledge' cards to politicians: their Westminster MP, and elected members of the Scottish Parliament, Welsh Assembly, Northern Ireland Assembly and Greater London Authority.

We want to capture politicians' attention as they think about policies for the general election in 2015. The Prospect Pledge campaign focuses on five issues of concern to our diverse membership. Depending on where you live and work, some may be of greater or more immediate relevance to you. Please campaign on any or all of them.

So far, over 100 politicians have signed one or more of our pledges.

“I believe in responsible procurement – when awarding public contracts government should consider the number of apprenticeships and graduate traineeships that are created and the quality of working relationships”
