Defend victimised Unison members

Issue No. 2161

A court set up by the Unison union has found four Socialist Party members guilty of producing a leaflet that could give “racist offence” at the union’s 2007 conference.

There was nothing racist in the leaflet and the disgraceful verdict is another sign of Unison’s attempt to clampdown on the left in the union.

The court was discussing what punishment should be handed down to Glenn Kelly, Brian Debus, Suzanne Muna and Onay Kasab as Socialist Worker went to press.
