Tomorrow is the last practical opportunity for Unison members to vote and have their say on who will represent them as the union’s next general secretary. Widely-endorsed grassroots candidate Paul Holmes explains below why it matters, in videos from his campaign:
A change in the nature of Unison’s leadership is even more vital for the Labour movement when Keir Starmer and the Labour right are trying to purge the left and its influence from the Labour party.
Voting is by post and ballots must be delivered no later than 5pm this Friday to be counted.
Unison has long been dominated by the right and has been criticised by its members for its weak positions. If you want to see change – in the union and/or in the Labour Party – make sure you vote.
