Following some intense democratic debate, Open Labour has adopted a position paper for 2017-18. The paper outlines our basic strategic and policy positions on the big issues in the country and the labour movement, which we have adopted in the hope of persuading Labour Party to follow. It also roughly outlines a set of priorities for our National Committee in the year ahead, which involve growing Open Labour, extending influence by intervening in debate, and organising to bring the ideas of the open left into action.
The paper was agreed as above at our founding conference in March 2017, having been proposed by our interim Management Committee and subject to a range of amendments proposed from the floor.
The full amendments document is available here and includes proposed amendments which were not passed. It should be noted that Amendment 3 has been remitted to our policy event in Manchester in June 2017.
