Brighton and Nottingham Green Party Councillors have publicly promised to respect Unison picket lines on 16 and 17 July. The Green Party Trade Union group calls on all Green party Councillors to follow this lead (if they have not already done so) and publicly give their support to the Unison strikers.
At the recent Green Party Trade Union Group Conference Caroline Lucas argued that The Green Party has become the true champion of the Labour movement
"The Green Party's record of championing Trade Union priorities, from defending public services from privatisation through to promoting a Living Wage, demonstrates that the Greens are the real party of social justice,"
GPTU calls on Green councillors to demonstrate by supporting the Unison strike that Caroline Lucas’ words aren’t just rhetoric.
