Not sure where to put this



Gerard Coyne, who is standing against Len McCluskey to be head of the Unite union, has been suspended from his job as a union official before the votes have even been counted.

The West Midlands official is understood to have received a letter warning that he has brought the union into disrepute during the campaign to lead Unite.

A spokesman for Coyne said: “We can confirm that Gerard has been suspended from his position as West Midlands regional secretary of Unite the Union. We will not be commenting further at this stage.”

I'm 80% sure that Coyne was the candidate whose platform consisted of "let's stop playing westminster politics" hilarious given the allegations

Private Eye has a story about irregularities in the branch nomination process favouring McCluskey. Unite is threatening to sue Private Eye.

I enthusiastically support the role unions have to play in fighting for better conditions and more equitable pay for their members.

But strawberry float these bullshit shenanigans and the amateurish mummy strawberry floaters involved in them.

Yeah agreed. I support the idea of unions fighting for the ordinary working people but it's also really off putting when you read about this sort of bullshit.

I want to join Unite on the basis that everyone ought to join a union but can't bring myself to do it while this nonsense continues.
