UNISON backs Ed Miliband for Labour leadership

Date: 21 July 2010

UNISON’s national political committee today gave Ed Miliband its backing in the forthcoming ballot for Labour leadership.

The decision was taken after consultation throughout the affiliated members of the union. Hustings at UNISON’s national political conference, attended by 200 UNISON Labour Party members representing the regions, were held in early July. All the candidates were present and the hustings were broadcast over the union’s website.

There will be an OMOV ballot of UNISON’s affiliated members, conducted by the Electoral Reform Society. Affiliated trade unions make up one-third of the electoral college. The ballot closes on 22 September.
