UNISON Members backing the re-election of Jeremy Corbyn

The National Labour Link Committee after consulting members will make the decision on whether or not it will support Jeremy Corbyn again please comment with name position and branch if you wish to sign the statement and make sure you respond to the consultation when it starts.
We the undersigned UNISON members support Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader. We are disappointed he is facing a new leadership election after winning 59.5% vote less than a year ago. We call on UNISON to once again nominate Jeremy Corbyn, Jeremy Corbyn has successfully repositioned the party as an anti-austerity party and as opposition has lead a battle in parliament defeating the government plans on 22 occasions. Jeremy supports UNISON policies and we support Jeremy.

UNISON members backing Jeremy Corbyn for Labour Leader

If you want to add your name to this statement, please let us know in the comments; include your branch and position if you have one.

We the undersigned as UNISON members support Jeremy Corbyn for Labour leader and believe UNISON should support him. Jeremy Corbyn is the candidate that most reflects the policy positions of our union.

He is the only candidate that is anti austerity and has already come out in support of UNISON's call for a £10 minimum wage. He supports building council housing, reversing all privatisation of the NHS, funding Social Care and supporting comprehensive education, nationalisation of energy and water, supporting better funding for Higher Education, and an end to loans and fees.

All in personal capacity.
