Unite cuts its cash to the Labour party

Issue No. 2394

The Unite union’s Executive Council (EC) cut its affiliation fee to the Labour Party in half last week, following Ed Miliband’s changes to the unions’ role in the party.

Other unions such as GMB have already cut their funding. However, the EC also authorised the general secretary to spend the money on other forms of support for Labour in the run-up to the general election.
