Take this motion to your union meeting

Labour movement conference to defend Corbyn and discuss new party

This union branch condemns the suspension of Jeremy Corbyn by the Labour Party and the removal of his parliamentary whip. Jeremy has broken no rule and has always opposed antisemitism.

This branch believes that the decision of Blairite Labour general secretary David Evans to suspend Jeremy for stating antisemitism within Labour has been "dramatically overstated for political reasons" is an incredible attack on the right of Labour Party members to express their views. This includes Constituency Labour Parties being been banned from passing motions that criticise the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) report or Corbyn's suspension.

This branch believes that this represents a political attack on the pro-worker policies expressed in the Labour 2017 and 2019 general election manifestos under Jeremy's leadership.

Keir Starmer is intent on moving Labour in the direction of big business interests, shown by his support for Tory Prime Minister Boris Johnson keeping schools and colleges open during the new lockdown.

This union branch calls on the union executive/national committee to:

  • In affiliated unions, instruct our representatives on Labour's national executive committee to demand that all disciplinary action against Jeremy Corbyn be rescinded
  • Approach other unions, both inside and outside of Labour, to convene a labour movement conference to fight this attack, and discuss how to ensure workers have a vehicle that does fight for their interests
