Read Leaked Unite Plot to Stitch Up Seats in Full mdi-fullscreen


  • Unite’s uniformed army plot to win seats: “Efforts will be made to develop an esprit de corps, including clothing”
  • Selections “like a swan, all that can be seen is indication of support while below the water activity is furious”
  • “as much involvement in candidate selection at local/regional level is our aim”
  • “our political department work is dominated currently by candidate selection matters”
  • “I do not intend to give a detailed written report. Previous reports to the EC have found their way onto web-sites and then been quoted in the press, so of necessity some of this will be verbal”
  • Lobbying exposed: “Enterprise and regulatory reform Bill -The union provided significant contributions to MPs and the Shadow teams in supporting attempts to block the worst aspects of both the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill and the Growth and Infrastructure Bill”
  • “A meeting was arranged with the Labour members of the BIS select committee together with AGS Tony Burke and Simon Dubbins, Director of Research and International. The meeting was to look at opportunities to work with Labour members on this committee in shaping the agenda and ensuring that Unite’s perspective on the issues under discussion is being heard. BIS’s role in both employment law and industrial policy makes this a potentially very influential body and through looking at how the research and knowledge we produce as a union can be used to support their work on the committee it is hoped to develop a strong relationship with those Labour MPs to the benefit of our members”

Confirming what we knew all along, it’s a stitch up…
