Commenting today (Friday) on the results of the 2017 general election, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “This is a remarkable result that few predicted at the start of the campaign – certainly not Theresa May.

“From the outset UNISON believed that if Labour shifted the debate onto public services it could strike a chord with the electorate, and Jeremy Corbyn has done just that. Our union is proud to have played its part.

“Theresa May wanted to strengthen her hand for Brexit negotiations – instead she is diminished in the eyes of the British people and watching world leaders.

“She has dragged the whole country through an election, only to leave herself and her party as damaged goods.

“Jeremy has inspired millions to vote for the first time and reinvigorated the fortunes of the Labour Party. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with him and the Labour Party to stand up for public services.”
