Len McCluskey’s Unite victory stokes fears of Labour deal with the SNP 

22 Apr

Ian Allinson came third in the contest, securing 17,143 votes.  

Gail Cartmail, Unite’s acting general secretary,  said: “I congratulate Len McCluskey on his victory and would urge the entire union to pull together in the interests of our members, and not least to work for a Labour victory in the general election.

“The turnout in this important election can give no cause for satisfaction and, while the tone of the campaign will not have helped, the underlying reason remains the archaic and expensive balloting system imposed on trade unions by law.
