UNISON members backing Jeremy Corbyn for Labour Leader

If you want to add your name to this statement, please let us know in the comments; include your branch and position if you have one.

We the undersigned as UNISON members support Jeremy Corbyn for Labour leader and believe UNISON should support him. Jeremy Corbyn is the candidate that most reflects the policy positions of our union.

He is the only candidate that is anti austerity and has already come out in support of UNISON's call for a £10 minimum wage. He supports building council housing, reversing all privatisation of the NHS, funding Social Care and supporting comprehensive education, nationalisation of energy and water, supporting better funding for Higher Education, and an end to loans and fees.

All in personal capacity.
