There is still time to vote in the regional South East election to UNISON’s National Labour Link Committee. This body oversees and determines the union’s relationship with the Labour Party and so will assume significant importance in its next term if there is a Labour government in power. It is vital that UNISON’s policies and the concerns of our members form a large part of Labour’s programme in power. About 1,000 of the branch’s 5,800 members are in the Labour Link political fund and so entitled to vote in this election.
The UNISON West Sussex branch committee has voted to back Steve Milford:
Steve Milford from the Isle of Wight branch has campaigned tirelessly throughout the region to get Labour candidates elected, UNISON policy into Labour, and members’ voices heard. Steve believes in progressive policies on social housing, the environment, local buses, NHS waiting times and ending Tory austerity and the cost-of-living crisis. Only Labour pursuing positive action on public ownership, working hand in hand with public sector unions like UNISON will deliver the radical change we need!
