CWU NOMINATE REBECCA LONG-BAILEY FOR LABOUR LEADER

In the culmination of the most democratic process of any Trade Union, over 500 delegates from across the UK have today voted to nominate Rebecca Long-Bailey to lead the Labour Party and Angela Rayner as deputy leader.

 

CWU General Secretary Dave Ward said “I am proud of the democratic process our union has conducted and it is clear to me that Rebecca Long-Bailey is the outstanding candidate for leader.

 

“It is also clear that the ability and experience of Angela Rayner make her the best candidate for deputy leader.”

 

“What is also true is the contest so far has not caught the imagination of Labour members or the wider public. We call on all candidates to deliver more dynamic and innovative campaigns in the coming weeks and months.”
