Don't feed the hand that bites you

Interesting report in Saturday’s Morning Star that UNISON, one of the Labour Party’s biggest funders, has suspended links with the Labour Party in connection with the pensions dispute.

Deputy General Secretary Keith Sonnet has e-mailed all the union’s political link officers advising them that funding has stopped for the May 2006 local elections except where the BNP are standing.

a UNISON spokewoman said: "It is felt that it is not appropriate or politicaly sensible to be organising on the one hand for industrial action by the union, while sending out letters and leaflets to many of the same members asking them to vote Labour"
