Ridiculous ‘Organise to Win’ presentation followed in short order by strike ballot notification to party
GMB and Unite, the two giant, Labour-affiliated unions representing most Labour employees, have told the Party they will ballot members for strike action next week because of the party’s plans to make around a quarter of its workforce redundant.
The ‘indicative ballot’ notification follows hot on the heels of Labour’s the presentation of its widely-derided ‘Organise to Win’ plan to bemused staff today – causing mystified looks at such language as:
adopt a product-mindset using agile ceremonies, be empowered to make decisions and encouraged to focus on rapid prototyping, deployment and iteration.
So opaque and questionable was the ‘management-speak’ in the plan that some were even questioning whether the language had been left in from a company presentation and missed during editing.
Both Unite and GMB, two of the party’s biggest union supporters, had already either cut or announced a review of their donations. Labour is said to be on the verge of bankruptcy, in large part because of the mass exodus of members disgusted at the leadership’s conduct and lack of opposition.
Now we have two large unions balloting for strike action against the party supposed to represent the workers. Starmer and Evans are destroying the Labour party.
