UNISON nominates Corbyn
I should leave the country more often!
For the first time in 12 years I miss a meeting of the UNISON National Executive Council (NEC) and what happens?
Our General Secretary pledges vigorous opposition to the Trade Union Bill, the NEC offer solidarity to Max Watson (facing the threat of dismissal) and John Burgess (facing threats from the far right) - and the NEC elects the majority of members of a National Labour Link Committee who go on (on the same day) to offer a supporting nomination for Labour Leader to Jeremy Corbyn.
In completely unrelated news, the NEC had on its agenda proposals for an election for General Secretary.
About which I'll blog when I'm back in the country.
