The Unite union has recently affiliated to the National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN). Len McCluskey, general secretary of the Unite union, says:

"The NSSN plays an important role in getting the word out and helping to build support and solidarity when a hostile Tory media is attacking us for defending our members.

"I spoke at the NSSN rally at the TUC last September alongside our striking bin workers from Birmingham. I look forward to our union developing a relationship with the network for the benefit of our members."
