South East Unison annual general meeting votes for no-cuts budgets
A motion calling on all councils to pass no-cuts budgets should be on the agenda at the conference of public service union Unison.
Paul Couchman, a Socialist Party member and branch secretary of Surrey Unison, proposed the resolution at the annual general meeting of the South East region of the union.
At the meeting, the anti-cuts initiative topped the poll out of seven motions.
Another motion from the Surrey branch calling for Labour's Blairite defectors to face by-elections passed overwhelmingly, but only unofficially.
Nine attendees bought copies of the Socialist and the left consolidated its position on the union's regional committee and in key regional positions.
