The Landworkers’ Alliance is a democratic, member-led union. We are constituted as a non-for-profit, co-operative, company limited by guarantee.
We have members across the UK and work wherever we can to support members needs at a local level and build our collective power by bringing members together to work on the issues that are important to them.
The LWA is growing fast and so working groups and structures at the local level change quickly. If you are a member who wants to get more involved contact us and we will direct you to local groups, coordinators and working groups.
As a member-led union we encourage active participation of members at whatever level they want to work at. To further this we organise trainings and events at which people can get involved. Visit the events page for more information about upcoming events and opportunities.
The Coordinating group is composed of up to 12 Directors who are elected from the membership by the membership at the Annual General Meeting. They are responsible for coordinating the strategic, financial, governmental and political work of the organisation.
The Coordinating group aims to represent a balance of sectors, branches and regions whilst maintaining gender parity, a range of ages and inclusion.
Branches and Regions
The membership of the LWA is organised into branches and regions according to where members live and work. Active members in branches and regions form teams to develop the local work of the organisation.
The LWA organises working groups to address specific areas of our work. These are composed of groups of members and change regularly to reflect the priorities of the organisation.
