Ken Livingstone Mayoral campaign: our role in kicking the Tories out

2 March 2012

The elections for London Mayor are now just two months away. Your help in getting rid of Tory Mayor Boris Johnson - the man who describes his second salary of £250,000 from the Telegraph as 'chickenfeed' whilst putting up Londoners' transport fares - is more important now than ever.


A Labour-run City Hall would give a fair hearing to our concerns, whereas the Tory Mayor has not met with transport union leaders even once during his term of office.

There are a number of ways members – whether you’re an individual Labour member or not – can get involved to help out Ken Livingstone in the run up to polling day on 3 May.

Ken’s campaign are running phone banks to speak to voters four nights a week, Monday to Thursday from 6pm and 8pm at 39 Victoria Street, London, SW1H 0HA. Training is given and no previous experience or special knowledge is needed.

There are also ways to get involved all over London, with leafleting and door- to-door canvassing taking place every weekend. If you want to get in touch with your local Labour Party to go out and help Ken, you can call 020 7783 1170 or email

You can also get in touch online through our interactive volunteer website All of Ken’s campaigning events are listed on here and there are blogs and articles about what is going on in the campaign as well.

If you can’t help out on the doorstep or on the phones, the best thing you can do is to make sure you and all your family are registered to vote. If you think you might not be able to make it to the polling station on Election Day, register for a postal vote. You can find out how to receive a postal voting form or to register to vote (ahead of the 18 April deadline) via

Your help in this election is vital in getting rid of a Tory Mayor who consistently attacks our union and get Ken Livingstone back in to City Hall to make London a fairer, safer city for us all.
