Just as the Labour Leadership election is coming to a close there is another important Labour Movement contest for 1.3 million UNISON members. The 5 yearly election of our General Secretary (GS).
I am supporting Dave Prentis to be re-elected as our GS. Dave is a members' champion and will always put the interests of the union first. Despite the Tory onslaught against public services and unions, UNISON has survived and continues to defend its members through thick and thin. We have even recruited record number of new members and activists.
We need an experienced, pragmatic leader and campaigner to defend members as we face a government determined to take us all back to a 1930s economy.
