For over a century the Cambridge Universities Labour Club (CULC) has been campaigning in Cambridge on the issues that matter to students most: on EMA, the Living Wage, tuition fees and bursaries.
The Club works closely with the local CLP to fight for Labour in the local and national elections, making a real difference to the lives of students and residents. Our members started and led the Living Wage campaign in Cambridge University, and we continue to fight for decent pay for people employed by our institutions. As the first university Labour Club in Britain to affiliate to the Co-Operative Party, CULC has always supported Labour’s mutual tradition. This heritage is put into practice in our campaign to promote credit unions and fight payday lending companies. Across Cambridge, CULC makes a difference in the day to day life of working people.
Every term CULC organizes a huge range of activities for Cambridge’s lefties: speakers, debates, trips to parliament, socials, women’s events, LGBT events and many more. Most recently we have hosted Alan Johnson talking about higher education and the future of the Labour Party, Owen Jones on alternatives to austerity, Andy Burnham talking about student politics and NHS reform and David Miliband on the Living Wage.
Look around the website and get in contact with us if you’d like to get involved or have any questions. We are part of CULC and the Labour Party because we believe we achieve most when working together. CULC’s members completely shape the Club’s policies and actions so let your voice be heard.
Elections are being held throughout Cambridgeshire on Thursday, May 22. Committed to ending Cambridge’s tale of two cities, the Labour group have set out their vision for our city in their excellent manifesto.
