What is our NHS doing in a trade deal with America? This again exposes the Government’s real plan for the NHS – complete and irreversible privatisation. “From lobbying links to investments and in some cases direct donations, scores of coalition MPs who voted for the NHS sell-off had links to the very private health ...

Left Unity Press Release [not an April fools] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Left Unity has welcomed comments by Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey raising the possibility of a debate over funding alternatives to Labour. Bianca Todd of Left Unity said: “Len McCluskey is absolutely right to raise the question: if Labour’s policies are just ‘a pale shade of austerity’ then why should the unions continue to fund it? “People are sick of Labour not standing up for them – that’s why 250 people joined our new party over the weekend. “Just this week we saw Labour’s Lord Warner proposing a £10 a month fee for the NHS, yet Labour has taken no action against him. Now is the time to build an alternative.” Speakers from Left Unity are available for interview. For more information contact pressor Tom on 07817 024364 Notes to editors 1.

As we approach 2015 and the end of the current cosy coalition, Nick Clegg has seen fit to tout himself and his party around the potential future occupants of number 10, to attempt to, desperately, cling to power for another term. The sight of a Liberal Democrat who stood for election on a left of centre platform then having renounced all his promises in the rose garden, now seeking a possible deal with Labour is enough to make my blood boil. It is not yet clear whether Clegg himself will keep his seat with a huge electorate of angry students in his constituency. Len McCluskey, General Secretary of Unite in an interview on Tuesday’s Newsnight said that people are looking for something different. They are looking for ‘people who have the courage of their convictions’. He then told Jeremy Paxman that he would like Labour to win outright but; ‘if Ed Miliband ends up as the largest party he should have the courage to govern as a minority government’.
Those on minimum wage must be elated this morning at the news of the rise, from £6.31 to £6.50 an hour. An extra 19p per hour pre tax, worth slightly short of 13p after tax. An astounding extra £5.20 a week net. The fact that most of the people receiving this massive increase will be on housing benefit which will result in 60% deducted of that for rent and 20% for Council Tax. The increase in minimum wage will mean 96p in total a week to most people. _ Minimum wage rise of 19p an hour a 'slap in the face for low paid workers' Low paid workers will see their hourly rate rise by 19p under plans branded a “slap in the face” last night. The 3 per cent hike to £6.50 recommended by the Low Pay Commission is above the rate of inflation. But it means that the there is little hope of the minimum wage hitting £7 an hour next year as Chancellor George Osborne recently suggested.

Britain’s people need jobs, hope and homes Len McCluskey addresses Trinity College Politics Society, Cambridge University Britain needs a government that will deliver decent jobs, homes and hope for its people – not more failing austerity, the leader of the UK’s biggest union, Unite, will tell Cambridge students today (Wednesday).

Addressing the Politics Society of Cambridge Union, Len McCluskey will ask: “What difference do you want to make to the world? “Over the last 30 years inequality between the rich and the rest has widened dramatically.

McCluskey: Unite will never be browbeaten by Crosby, Cameron or the Daily Mail 11 November 2013 Amidst the most vicious attacks on the union movement since the 1970s, the leader of the biggest union in Britain and Ireland has vowed `no retreat’ from protesting against abusive employers. And with the government using the cover of the slump to lay siege to workers’ wages and rights, Len McCluskey will warn that the Tories’ deployment of the services of Lynton Crosby is a reminder that attacks on workers and their unions will only become more vicious ahead of the 2015 election. Addressing the third gathering of Unite’s industrial sectors since the union was formed in 2009, the General Secretary will say: “Today, we meet in the middle of a vast media witch-hunt against our union, reminiscent of the 1970s and 1980s. We are facing unscrupulous smears from both media and politicians. Every day we read statements and press articles about Unite which do not come within hailing distance of the truth. . ...
Union boss Len McCluskey ‘elected by phantoms’ THE boss of Britain’s biggest union, involved in a voterigging inquiry in Falkirk, faces investigation over alleged irregularities in his own election. The allegations over the election of Len McCluskey as General Secretary of the Unite union centre on claims that almost 160,000 of those balloted were not members. His rival for the job, Jerry Hicks, has complained that the election was unlawful because people who had left the union were included in the ballot. Hicks said dead former members were among those who were sent voting papers. The Certification Office — the union regulator, which has the power to order McCluskey’s election to be rerun — confirmed this weekend that it has launched an investigation. An official complaint is expected to be submitted to Unite in the next few weeks. Hicks said this weekend: “Was Falkirk an aberration or a modus operandi? There are serious questions that need to be answered about these tens of thousands of no ...

Witness at centre of Labour vote-rigging scandal rejects claims by Unite that she had withdrawn her story. Despite initially saying that there were ‘serious issues’ and ‘bad practices’ in Falkirk, Ed Miliband backed down to his trade union paymasters, failed to publish Labour’s inquiry and cleared Unite and the suspended individuals of any wrongdoing. These extraordinary revelations mean Labour must reopen the Falkirk inquiry immediately. Ed Miliband failed to stand up to the unions in Falkirk and backed down in the face of pressure from Len McCluskey. If he is too weak to stand up to his union bosses and tackle what he himself called ‘bad practices’, how can he stand up for hardworking people?

The knives are out for Len McCluskey but Ed should be proud of Labour's union link
The only part that I disagree with is that the Labour Party is a friend of the working man/woman,in Scotland I believe that the SNP are more in tune with us ordinary Scots. Scots Politics Miliband should embrace Labour’s union link Posted: 03 Nov 2013 04:11 PM PST The knives were out for Unite’s General Secretary Len McCluskey last week as the shockwaves from Grangemouth refused to die away. Columnists condemned both the actions of Unite and McCluskey, while Andrew Neil dedicated a chunk of yesterday’s Sunday Politics to bellowing “the day was only saved by your total capitulation and humiliation” as McCluskey protested the union’s innocence. Popular opinion suggests that Ed Miliband needs to stamp down on McCluskey in order to assert his authority and sever the ties to the union. The ‘Red Ed’ moniker has plagued him since his election as Labour leader and was used to dismiss him before he’d even begun his new role. Screeds of print have claimed that, should Ed fail to give the unions th ...
