We need ‘unity and a focus on winning the upcoming election’, says UNISON

Dave Prentis calls for Labour to concentrate on beating Boris Johnson

Speaking ahead of the start of the Labour Party annual conference today (Saturday) in Brighton, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:

“The sole focus this week should be on taking the fight to Boris Johnson.

“What we need at this time is unity and a focus on winning the upcoming election.

“Anything else is a betrayal of UNISON members and working people everywhere – all of whom are relying on us to deliver a Labour government.”
