Unite the Union, is it the end.

Seems the Union has just been lumped with a 1.3 Million bill for trying to defend a Pro Corbyn web site in a libel case. Labour MP Anna Turley won an earlier case of libel against Squarkbox, yep no idea and Unite agreed to pick up the bill.

This on top of fraud, over spend and Lens flat must mean the members must be going WTF?

That will explain why they’ve just started chasing me over arrears despite not sending me an invoice for 7 months

Well never mind, you defend the righteous and have a half built hotel in Birmingham to look forward to.

I was forced to be a member of ASTMS for a couple of years (closed shop - remember them} now a part of Unite.

When I / we (my colleagues) needed the union they hung us out to dry and did nothing.

I hope they go bust completely and that commie excuse for a scouser McCluskey gets taken for every penny.

Unions in the main are useless , they are self serving, money grabbing branches of the Labour Party.
Unison didn't want to know when I needed them , so much for sticking up for those who are in need and want to keep working rather than claim benefits!
I still get emails and all they are doing is s#*! Stirring and political point scoring. Nauseating.
Let's hope the union does fold and people see ypthem for what they are.

As I have been self employed since leaving the mob, I have no knowlege of the unions myself.
Are you still paying for them at source or do you have an opt out option. If you decide not to contribute, who knows about it and does it effect promotion ect.

Commenting on the hearing, former Labour deputy leader Tom Watson called for Mr Beckett - as Unite's "legal guy" - to be sacked.


Will no one rid me of this turbulent.......

They make it easy for moderates to target, the hard left all trying to justify his little racist tantrum.

They used to own Esher Place.

An acquaintance that used to live in the 'caretakers bungalow' on site, told me it was used by the champagne socialists for rampaging parties with taxis full of 'call girls' delivered most nights of the week.

Just to check - is this bad or good?

Both, they put the cost of the taxi on the bill....
There was apparently an arrangement to pay the girls out of the venue's cash and add the 'extras' to the delegates bill, which was paid from union funds.

B'Liar was a regular visitor, taking Cherie up the Esher place on a regular basis

A Chinese investment group offered some £23m to buy the Unions hotel in Eastbourne. Len wasn’t interested for some reason.Must be looking like a lost opportunity now.

Closed shops have been illegal for about 30 years

You don't have to pay the political levy part of TU membership (NB, Not all Unions do give that money to Labour).

Was paid already.
 
They should have gone years ago

The irony that a Workers Union bullies and harasses it's own staff. Only the Left could be this shit

More than half the female officers in Britain’s biggest union claim to have been bullied or sexually harassed by fellow officials or members in their workplaces, a leaked internal study has found.

The report about the treatment and working conditions of female representatives at Unite also concluded that a quarter of employed officers believe allegations of bullying were not handled well by the union when they were reported.
