Unison Witch Hunt : Update

An update on Unison activist Tony Staunton. He has been suspended by Unison for 60 days in a clear attack on left wing activists. Please rush messages of support and write to Unison national office. Action like this can only serve to weaken the movement and plays into the hands of the very people we should be fighting against. Unity is strength. Stop attacks on trade unionists.

Tony Staunton, Plymouth local government Unison branch secretary, has been suspended from office for 60 days by Unison union leaders.
This is part of an investigation over the alleged political use of a computer bought for him by his union branch.

Tony says, “I intend to defend myself vigorously. I have not broken and would not knowingly break the rules of the union. I remain committed to the aims and objectives of Unison and a devoted trade union activist. I ask for your formal support.”
