GMB and Unite Balloting Strike Action Over Labour Party Redundancies

Unite and GMB are balloting strike action after plans to “reorganise” the Labour Party were announced to staff on Tuesday. The proposed cuts would result in approximately 90 redundancies. Hardly a surprise; Labour’s finances are in the gutter. Three elections, declining membership numbers, and a series of legal fights over antisemitism have inevitably taken their toll…

London region organiser for the GMB Vaughan West said:

“GMB will ask members if they are willing to strike over compulsory redundancies. If the answer is yes, we will not hesitate to move to a formal strike ballot.”

A regional officer for Unite added:

“Labour staff have worked tirelessly for the party and should not be made to pay the price for this reorganisation.”

This does not bode well for Starmer…
