Bakers back McDonnell

In a letter to all Labour MPs, the Labour affiliated Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) have called for nominations for John McDonnell in the contest for the Labour Leadership (http://www.l-r-c.org.uk/files/BFAWU1.pdf).



Joe Marino (General Secretary) and Ronnie Draper (President) write:

 

"BFAWU recognises the unquestionable and unwavering work that John McDonnell has done for the British trade union movement.

 

We also welcome his determination that working people must not be made for a crisis that is not of their making, and his opposition to the Con-Dem cuts agenda that will devastate our communities.

 

Therefore we are calling upon all Labour MPs and members of the Bakers Union Parliamentary Group in particular to nominate John McDonnell in the interests of party democracy, regardless of the final candidate they may choose to support."
