A lot has been made of the recent press release by Les Bayliss on how to oppose the Public Spending cuts.
His use of the Murdoch press is quite rightly being heavily criticised by Trade Unionists as are his criticisms of the BA dispute.
Below is the statement by the leading candidate in the Unite GS election Len McCluskey hopefully decent minded members will spot the difference in approach to attacks on services, pay and pensions.
Len McCluskey Statement on Public Service Cuts
But the cuts also impact across our union. The construction industry is already being hard hit. Manufacturing firms like Sheffield Forgemasters have had their future blighted by the withdrawal of government support. Transport will suffer from the cuts. Finance sector workers - including in state-owned banks - are paying the price for their bosses' blunders.
And all Unite members and their families will feel the pain of the government's economic policy in their communities as the cuts bite into vital services.
So I believe fighting back against the government must be top priority for Unite as a whole.
Back our members in the public services in taking industrial action to save jobs, pay and conditions.
Campaign politically to say working people should not pay for a crisis caused in the City, and that the situation shows we were right to warn against reliance on free-market policies.
Support initiatives to unite unions with community groups fighting against the cuts and for social justice. Let's connect with our communities!
Put fighting for jobs at the top of our agenda across sectors, and demand that the government stops redundancies at state-controlled banks, and use those banks to support jobs employment throughout the economy.
