The ballot papers for Unison’s National Labour Link Committee elections have been sent out. Our branch committee nominated Andrew Berry’s candidacy for re-election. Here is Andrew’s supporting statement:
I am standing for re-election to UNISON’s National Labour Link Committee of which I have been a member since 2013.
With no mandate, Johnson’s hard right government looks increasingly likely to bring about a catastrophic no-deal Brexit. There will also be further attacks on pay and pensions and no real action to tackle climate change.
I was instrumental in UNISON nominating Jeremy Corbyn in both leadership elections. We need a Labour Link that will help defeat the Tories and support a socialist and transformative Labour government.
