Model motion

This UNITE branch/RISC/NISC/Regional Committees (delete as appropriate) welcomes the outstanding election of Jeremy Corbyn as the new Labour Leader with 59.5% of the vote on a platform of anti-austerity, and a bold new vision of a fair and just society for working people.

We congratulate UNITE Executive Council for the decision to endorse Jeremy Corbyn and to recommend support for him by UNITE members. We also congratulate the work of the UNITE Political Department for the tremendous effort they put in to sign up more than 100,000 UNITE affiliated supporters , more than half of the total number of affiliated supporters signed up by all affiliated unions. There is no doubt that UNITE's Political Strategy to engage with and win back the Labour Party for working class values has been hugely important in achieving this success.
