Mayoral Nomination Canvassing Survey - Greater London UNISON Labour Link

This is a reminder about the survey that all UNISON members who are in Greater London region (and are part of the Applied political Fund APF - also known as Labour Link) received last week.

UNISON is I think the only union affiliated to the Labour Party to survey its members on who to nominate.

There is a longstanding national policy in UNISON Labour Link to prioritise nominating and supporting candidates who are UNISON members..

This policy was agreed by the elected UNISON Greater London Labour Committee, which I Chair. The 3 UNISON members are:-

KHAN, Sadiq     
If you click on the names above you will find copies of the candidates statements.

I have also sent a reminder today to the 1000 members of my branch (Housing Associations) who have chosen to affiliate to the Labour Party.

The survey finishes 12 noon on Friday 5 June 2015!

To sign up as a UNISON Affiliated Supporter and be able to participate in the actual ballot for Mayor candidate (and new Labour Leader and Deputy Leader) go to   All APF members need to register with the Party to be able to vote. This is free for UNISON members and only £3 if you are not a member of an affiliated trade union. The deadline to register has been extended to 12 noon 12 August.
