Solidarity with the GMB

The GMB have taken the opportunity of their annual Conference (in the best venue, Brighton) to publish details of the involvement of privateer Carillion in organised victimisation of union activists (http://www.gmb.org.uk/newsroom/latest_news/224_blacklisted_by_carillion.aspx#).



This is just one more reason to oppose privatisation of our public services.



With GMB General Secretary, Paul Kenny, attending next week's UNISON Conference as a guest speaker, in his capacity as this year's President of the TUC, I hope that UNISON can find our way to wholehearted support for the struggle being waged against Carillion by GMB members in Swindon (http://www.gmb.org.uk/default.aspx?page=2807).



The interests of lay trade union members are generally best served by trade union unity rather than competition between unions.
