Unite Statement On Call For An Early General Election

Responding to today's (Tuesday 18 April) announcement by prime minister Theresa May of a general election on 8 June, Unite acting general secretary Gail Cartmail said:

"The prime minister has gone back on her word regarding an early general election and the electorate will remember that.

"The country now has a choice between whether to vote for a Conservative party which is determined to pursue a hard, disastrous Brexit and is wedded to continuing with miserable austerity and destroying the rights and living standards of working people, or a Labour party which is presenting real, positive change based on a fairer economy and determined to ensure that on leaving the EU, jobs and communities can thrive.

"Labour has the policy platform that voters want. Now it is time to take it to the country and win the change working people so urgently need. During this upcoming electoral period Unite's work to support members at their workplaces will continue unimpeded."
