Unison members in Greater London – “London for Change” – have voted in greater numbers for the interests of the membership as opposed to the interests of external political cliques, for a refreshing fifth year in a row at their February AGM.
Sweeping the elections at Unison’s Greater London Region meeting, candidates rejecting the sectarian division of ultra-left bullyboy tactics and false division over grounds of race and gender opened up a clear 2:1 advantage over their opponents.
This result shows great maturity among delegates. Thinking and acting as workers and trade unionists has thoroughly batted off the destructive behaviour of unrepresentative minorities. Unison members in London can now look forward to dealing with real threats from the employers or government without having a fifth column in a wrecking position.
