Unions Demand Whip Restored to Jeremy Corbyn to Keir Starmer

“In the face of millions losing their jobs & a disgraceful imposition by the government of a public sector pay freeze, we have been distracted by internal wrangling, which is causing deep division in our party & will not be understood or forgiven by the British public.”

It was reported Wednesday evening by LabourList that after meeting Keir Starmer recently regarding the whip being restored, eight trade union general secretaries have issued the following statement.

“At a meeting with Keir Starmer (Monday 23rd November) unions expressed concerns at the situation regarding Jeremy Corbyn and called for the Labour whip to be restored to him.

In the face of millions losing their jobs and a disgraceful imposition by the government of a public sector pay freeze, we have been distracted by internal wrangling, which is causing deep division in our party and will not be understood or forgiven by the British public.

We urge all parties to resolve this matter quickly.”
