At this year’s Durham Miners’ Gala. GMB General Secretary, Tim Roache.
“If we had had any of the other three candidates last year, we would have continued to lose all the millions of voters we have lost over the years.
[Jeremy Corbyn] offers us an alternative, He offers us proud trade unionism. He offers us one movement. He offers us the link between the trade union and the Labour Party, and the political influence that that gives us. So, let’s back him, let’s get behind him, let’s give workers that united voice that we need”.
So vote in GMB’s consultative ballot on who the union should support, let’s follow Tim’s advice and vote for Corbyn.
