Labour non-Unite member? Had Coyne email? SKWAWKBOX wants your help

The SKWAWKBOX is gathering information relating to the DPA (Data Protection Act) breaches by Gerard Coyne and individuals within the Labour Party hierarchy, which this blog broke when non-members of Unite began to receive campaign emails from Unite General Secretary challenger Gerard Coyne.

Labour member data breach – no shortage of smoking guns

People all over the UK, including Scotland and Ireland, have been affected by the breach but the SKWAWKBOX wants to collate more information on the geographical spread of those who received the emails and texts.

If you are not a Unite member and have received these emails or texts, you have been a victim of the DPA breach and we want to hear from you – even if you’ve already checked in, so we can collate the fullest possible information in one place.

Please email a short summary of what you received and your town or region to SKWAWKBOXDPA@outlook.com and spread the word to widen the net.

Thanks for your help.

  1. I recently recieved an email which started- Dear Unite member….. I am not or ever have been a member of Unite. Unfortunately I deleted the email. It was a Coyne email. Thought it was a bit strange at the time.
    I live in Exeter and I am a member of the Labour Party.

  2. Commented earlier about recieving one of these emails but had deleted it. I have just retrieved it.

  3. I am a Unite and Labour member and received e-mail which is definitely a similar template to Labour ones. It does not come from Unite source

    1. Coyne is using Nationbuilder, which I believe Labour also uses. But if you’re a Unite member, it’s unlikely to be a breach for Coyne to be contacting you

  4. I have received 2 emails one on the 30th and another on 8th , I belong to a different union , have never been a member of Unite .

  5. Yes.. I have had a few emails telling me to vote for Coyne. I have NEVER been a member of Unite. I did wonder why I received this – thanks for filling in the missing pieces!
