The Greater Manchester Tenants Union is a member-led organisation of low and middle-income renters and residents working and fighting together to win concrete improvements in our everyday lives, and put political and economic power in the hands of ordinary working people.
We hear daily of the impacts of a broken housing system on people’s lives: skyrocketing rents, poor conditions, people having to move from their neighbourhood because of gentrification, precarity and abusive landlords.
We want to transform the housing system so that everyone has access to an affordable, secure and decent home. We fight for a world run by and for working people.
In towns and neighborhoods across Greater Manchester we are building the union from scratch, by people working, taking action, fighting and winning together. We stop evictions, win compensation for our members for repairs, and campaign to push our local authorities and the government to bring in tough regulations in the Private Rented Sector, and fight for an expansion of public housing.
