Your union takes more than £150 million of subscription money from members every year. I do not believe there is enough openness about how your money is spent. You deserve better, so I will give members like you oversight of Unite’s finances.
Vote Gerard Coyne now and clean up Unite.
Under the current leadership of Unite you have faced year-on-year increases, but have you seen more in return for your money?
As General secretary, I will freeze your membership subscription rate for two years. I will introduce Family Membership of Unite to build our movement and improve your value for money. I will also re-introduce honorary membership for retired members with long service, reversing the introduction of charges by the current leadership.
I will build a stronger, more effective union – not waste time playing Westminster politics.
My first priority every day as General Secretary will be to protect and improve your terms and conditions. Our current leader spends too much of his time – and your money – playing at Westminster politics.
