From The Socialist newspaper, 25 November 2009

Defend the four!

Unison has been hearing the appeals of four Socialist Party members and Unison activists who face bans from union office for up to five years in a vicious witch-hunt orchestrated by the Unison bureaucracy. Glenn Kelly, Onay Kasab and Suzanne Muna have now had their appeals heard, Brian Debus' is on 11 January.

The union has said that no decision will be made on any of the appeals until the last appeal is heard. Important dates for supporters to note:

  • Reclaim the Union meeting: 8 December, 7.30pm, Houses of Parliament.
  • This is part of the campaign, in Unison's London region, for an independent inquiry. John McDonnell MP will be speaking.

  • Lobby of Unison national executive: 9 Dec ember, 8.30am, Mabledon Place, WC1, off Euston Road, London. Unison members in other regions are asked to protest outside their Unison regional offices.
