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.”
