UNISON Housing Association branch votes in favour of staying in EU and campaigning to do so

The picture is from tonight's meeting of the new Executive Committee (and our regional officer Colin Inniss) of Greater London UNISON branch meeting in Kings Cross which decided to respond to a consultation by the national union over Europe, by voting to stay in and encourage our members to also do so.

It was felt that we cannot "duck" the issue and our members will expect UNISON to have a position on the EU and that despite all its faults it did protect workers' rights, promote peace and equalities.  

The union wide consultation finished this evening and the final decision about our policy on the EU will be taken by the UNISON NEC next week.

Check out the motion in favour that was also passed here http://grayee.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/trade-unionists-for-in-tu4in.html and the website http://www.anothereurope.org/
