Wednesday, 02 July 2014

The NEC congratulated newly-elected councillors and MEPs and thanked members, trade unions and party staff for their hard work.

The figures showed significant swings from the Tories and strong performances in marginal seats and in London.  Labour made net gains of 338 councillors and seven additional MEPs, taking the total to 20, the third-largest national contingent in the Socialists and Democrats group.

What is the future of the Labour-union link? Print E-mail

After Collins, what of the future? Of the collective link between the Labour Party and the trade unions as organisations representing the organised working class? The composition of the implementation committee is quite encouraging, and its actions may avert our worst fears in the immediate future. For example, Labour Uncut have suggested that the implementation committee  might change the basis of the London mayoral primary, and any early leadership election so that union members can be fully involved. They, of course. wish to prevent that. So the battle continues to preserve effective union involvement in party decision-making.
