Member of Parliament for Easington

Re-elect Len McCluskey!

April 10, 2017 Blog 0

I have been a member of Unite since I first started to work and am now the Chair of the Unite group in Parliament. I have seen first hand the hard work Unite members have put into ensuring Labour victories across the country and the incredible leadership Len McCluskey has shown.

Len has proudly led Unite the union since his election to office in 2010. Unite is the UK & Ireland’s largest trade union with over 1.4 million members right across the country. He played a leading part in the negotiations that led to the formation of Unite through the merger of the Transport and General Workers’ Union and Amicus. From 2007, when Unite was formed, as Assistant General Secretary, Len’s work was dedicated to making the new union work for its members.

From Sports Direct to BMW, Easyjet to Jaguar Land Rover, from shipbuilding to London Buses, Unite is winning and improving conditions in workplaces across the UK and Ireland.

Leading the fight against failed austerity, defending our NHS and public services and challenging the rise of in-work poverty.  Bringing in thousands of new community members, standing shoulder-to- shoulder with the vulnerable in our communities and members across our union. He also built a strike fund of over £35 million to defend members fighting for justice.

Do not believe the lies and smears by the opposition’s campaign and the media. With 1,185 branch nominations, representing 559,000 members, Len is absolutely the right man for the job.

Len said:

“I will always fight to defend our members; fighting for proper funding of vital services, an end to ideological cuts and a return to investment in homes and people. Alongside resources to provide security, wages and conditions that value your work.

I will lead the fight to protect the vulnerable in society. Our support for the Peoples Assembly, action to defend our NHS and community campaigns to build user and worker alliances to help us win the struggles that affect us all.”

Len McCluskey’s re-election is important to the continued success of our movement, so if you’re a Unite member, then please #VoteLen.
