Labour & Co-operative
Since 1927, the Labour Party has had an electoral agreement with Co-operative Party. This means joint candidates can stand in elections and will appear as Labour & Co-operative candidates on the ballot. There are currently 25 MPs, 5 Metro Mayors, and more than 900 Councillors who are both Labour & Co-operative parties.
The Co-operative Party
The Co-operative party is the party of the UK’s co-operative movement, committed to building a society in where power and wealth are shared.
Democratic, public ownership of the services and utilities we all rely on. Tackling the housing crisis through co-operative housing. Fans having a say in their sports club. Credit unions as an alternative to rip-off payday lenders. Shops owned by their customers that give back to the community.
Whether in government or opposition, for a century the Co-operative Party has been a voice for co-operative values and principles in the places where decisions are taken, and laws are made.
