Union backing for John McDonnell

I made a bad joke elsewhere about the names missed off today’s Guardian letter in support of John McDonnell.

The real point is that John has the support of the TGWU Broad Left, the AMICUS Unity Gazette, and the CWU Broad Left – not to mention of course the Executive of ASLEF!

In UNISON we have the support of the United Left and are getting things moving.

John is also getting some positive recognition from the GMB for his support for GMB members in dispute.

So will our Union leaders listen to the rank and file – or continue to harbour illusions in Gordon “Contestability” Brown?
