The Socialist Party has received a message from Steve Hedley, assistant general secretary of the RMT, resigning from the Socialist Party.
Steve feels it is necessary to resign in order to concentrate on dealing with an allegation of domestic violence which has been made against him. Steve refutes this allegation, which is currently being investigated by the RMT.
“Regarding our conversation earlier the police have dropped the case and I’m currently awaiting the outcome of the RMT investigation.
“I am not in control of when the decision will be made and have been strongly advised against issuing a public statement whilst investigations are ongoing.
“I know this puts the Socialist Party in a difficult position and am therefore resigning my membership.
“I will continue to support TUSC and the NSSN and work constructively with SP comrades.”
