Just came out of Democracy Commission to obv crushing news. Would be easy to descend into doom. Just remember that’s what Tories wanted their 50% shitty threshold to do. They want us demoralised. Resist! We have a lot to assess + do. We need to build. We need resources to do it/1
A lot of us did a lot of work on GTVO. We’re knackered. We reached a lot of ppl+got strong YES result. What can we learn+do? Must reflect+organise together at every level. How can we boost creative ideas like those at HESC in November and reach more ppl? Eg ntnl phonebanking? /2
We need deep diving on what holds some members back from voting. Research we did @leedsucu last time gave us a mixed picture of timing, ballot confusion+fatigue, key messages not getting across. Has this changed? Have we succeeded in some areas/dropped others or stayed same?/3
We had a strong vote for action on casualisation, equal+fair pay, workload. We really must not forget that. But I’d like to see us rid of the repressive anti-Trade Union laws AND regularly smash 50% turnout regardless. This means *constructive* reflection + organising /4
Massive shout out to all amazing activists, reps, who after weeks of incessant GTVO are now reminding everyone the fight goes on -eg @HelenCFinch properly on point here:

It's gutting (esp as in 2015 we'd have struck after the FIRST ballot) but we go on /5
@HelenCFinch *Everything* in our UK-level claim matters. Now our job = pushing #anticas #equalpay #fairpay #workload forward, organising in our branches, regions, across the UK. Let's build a massive fire under them: locally + ready for next UK-wide ballot. No giving up! ✊/6
