General Secretary On Labour At The Labour Party Conference

23 Sep 2013

Paul Kenny, GMB General Secretary and chair of Trades Unions and Labour Party Liaison Organization (TULO) spoke at the Labour Party conference in Brighton in the debate on the Collins Report on Sunday 22nd September.

The real debate this week is about jobs, homes, living standards, employment rights not irrelevant navel gazing about internal party structures says Paul Kenny.

Paul Kenny, General Secretary, said in the speech “The trade union affiliates will only put in one speaker to this discussion. The reason being we think the real debate this week is about jobs, homes, living standards, employment rights not irrelevant navel gazing about internal party structures which frankly the British public do not give a fig about. The desire to expand Party membership is a shared one but, let nobody be under any illusion that as collective organisations the removal or sale of our collective voice is not on the agenda. We are proud of who we are and what we have achieved by way of social justice.”
