This UNITE branch/RISC/NISC/Regional Committees (delete as appropriate) welcomes the outstanding election of Jeremy Corbyn as the new Labour Leader with 59.5% of the vote on a platform of anti-austerity, and a bold new vision of a fair and just society for working people.
We congratulate UNITE Executive Council for the decision to endorse Jeremy Corbyn and to recommend support for him by UNITE members. We also congratulate the work of the UNITE Political Department for the tremendous effort they put in to sign up more than 100,000 UNITE affiliated supporters , more than half of the total number of affiliated supporters signed up by all affiliated unions. There is no doubt that UNITE's Political Strategy to engage with and win back the Labour Party for working class values has been hugely important in achieving this success.
However we know that Jeremy's election was not welcomed by the majority of the Labour PLP and those elements within the Labour Party who support New Labour neo-liberal economics etc. His leadership and the policies he represents will receive unremitting criticism and ridicule in almost all the mainstream media.
We therefore call on UNITE Executive Council to ensure that this great union does everything it can to mobilise and unite the growing movement of support behind Jeremy Corbyn's leadership, including the huge army of young people who were enthused to support his campaign, as well as the increased number of UNITE members who became engaged in politics and the Labour Party for the first time.
We therefore recommend:
We support MOMENTUM as the new movement aimed at building a mass movement outside of Parliament (e.g. anti-austerity and for Trade Union rights) to back Jeremy Corbyn to become Prime Minister.
