From The Socialist newspaper, 11 April 2012

Unison Service Group Executive elections

Unison's elections for the Service Group Executives (SGE) are being held from 10 April to 18 May. It is clear that the Con-Dem government have declared war on the public sector and is intent on making public sector workers in particular pay for their financial crisis with jobs, wages, conditions and pensions.

These national attacks need a national response from Unison. The pension dispute has shown that Unison members will back a call for coordinated national strike action to defend pensions.

The Socialist Party believes that members should reject the pension deals and reinstate the national strike action, linking up with the teachers, civil servants and others, as the only way to force this government to back down.

In the SGE elections, please vote for the Socialist Party members below who are committed to building a fighting democratic union. You can only vote for the candidates in your service group or region.
