Unite and GMB combine on right-wing pair’s repeat offending, protection of senior management salaries and lack of basic consultation
The Unite and GMB unions have joined forces to hammer Keir Starmer and David Evans over their plans to sack 90 Labour staff without proper consultation and to demand – their word – action from them no later than tomorrow.
The unions have issued a joint, public rebuke to the pair for their treatment of staff, who only found out about their planned job losses via the Starmer-friendly media, along with a list of their demands.
And they point out that this is now a pattern of behaviour by the right-wing Labour pair:
The unions especially condemned and challenged the fact that Labour had not taken any steps to reduce or limit the pay of the party’s senior management to cut or eliminate the need for job losses among much lower-paid junior staff – and on the feeblest of excuses.
How typical of Labour right to protect the fat cats while making the junior grades, who had nothing to do with the problems Labour is suffering that were generated entirely by the decisions of the ‘leadership’, carry the can. Unite and the GMB are right to combine their efforts and anger against Starmer, Evans and co.
