Unite the Union Political fund. Time to opt out. 


Unite the Union political fund: 

For nearly 2 years now I have been pressing Unite to allow members the opportunity to contribute to our unions political fund but have the option to have none of our money given to the Scottish Labour Party. 

Today Labour announce they will support the Tory welfare cuts and cuts to child tax credits. This is a party that no trade unionist can support. 

Therefore time is now up for Unite. As they have failed to allow members to contribute to a campaigning political fund without having to contribute to a Labour Party who stand against our trade union values the union have forced us into this position. 

I will be opting out the political fund tomorrow. See below details if you wish to do so to.
