Unison branch secretary Tony Staunton wins support

Issue No. 2034

This month’s meeting of the South West regional council of the Unison union took place last Saturday.

A United Left meeting discussed the national executive elections and agreed to campaign for the nomination of Tony Staunton and Chrissie Gardner across the region.
