UNISON has decided to nominate Jeremy Corbyn in the Labour Party leadership contest and Yvette Cooper as its second choice at the union’s National Labour Link committee today (Wednesday).
UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis said:
“Jeremy Corbyn’s message has resonated with public sector workers who have suffered years of pay freezes, redundancies with too many having to work more for less."
UNISON’s higher education service group executive has decided to accept the employer’s pay offer, after 72% of members voted to back it.
The executive met on 30 June to consider the result of the branch consultative ballot on this year’s pay offer from the national employers’ organisation, the University and Colleges Employers’ Association.

Last week over 100 young members in UNISON met in Nottingham for a "Young Members" weekend. As you'll see from the video they shot, they had a great conference and entered into some excellent discussions and debates.
Are you under 27 and wondering about joining UNISON? Are you already a young member in UNISON and want to know more about getting involved and active?
