Trade Union strategy for the Labour leadership contest...

This is from the front page of the UNISON website.

“UNISON and the GMB have united to develop a joint strategy for the forthcoming Labour leadership contest.This is to ensure there is a new direction to party policy which includes fairer pay, better working conditions, pension improvements and equal pay for all public sector staff.”

Who can spot the flaw in this approach?

What if the leaders of the big unions haven’t done all they could to ensure that there will be a leadership contest?

And what if that means we get a leader who is the architect of privatisation?

It’s not as if we haven’t been offered an alternative
