From The Socialist newspaper, 20 November 2004

UNISON elections - nominate Roger Bannister

THE GOVERNMENT'S latest proposals on council workers' and other public sector staff's pension schemes will mean higher contributions but lower pensions, based only on basic salary and taking no account of overtime or weekend payments. This will hit the lowest-paid workers such as home helps worst of all.

As our feature on pensions shows the government want to make us all work until we drop. This needs a strong union response.

Unfortunately the present UNISON leadership are seen as too much in the pockets of New Labour. That's why UNISON members are striving to get Roger Bannister nominated as the fighting candidate for the union's general secretary elections to be held early in 2005.

Roger got 32% of the vote in the 2000 elections, and he's the only candidate to come out clearly for UNISON members to be balloted about whether to keep our affiliation to the Labour Party.

Nominations have to be in by 10 December. To nominate Roger, he is a member of Knowsley branch, number 1318436.
