Public Sector Workers And Unison Poll

EDM number 1847 in 2007-08, proposed by John McDonnell on 19/06/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Employment, Industrial relations and Political parties.

That this House notes the findings of the recent Ipsos-Mori opinion poll survey commissioned by Unison which show that 49 per cent. of public service workers are less likely to vote Labour than in 2005, that Government policy on running public services would be important when people decide how to vote at the next election and that 79 per cent. of people believe that public services should be run by the Government or local authorities rather than by private companies; and further commends the comments of Unison General Secretary Dave Prentis, that the poll is a wake-up call to the Prime Minister and that `it's time to end the affair with big business and recapture traditional ground. Public sector workers, Labour's natural supporters, are deserting the party in their droves'.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
