Greater London UNISON has made no recommendation in the Mayor Selection but points out that Sadiq Khan, David Lammy and Tessa Jowell are UNISON members.
The Islington Branch Labour Link meeting voted to support Diane Abbott MP for 1st preference.
There was no recommendation for second preference but a majority of other trade unions have nominated Sadiq Khan MP and Diane’s campaign is recommending a 2nd preference to Sadiq.
National Labour link Committee (Greater London seat):
This is a separate ballot sent to your home address and you do not need to register for it all APF payers should get one, the Branch has nominated myself, Andrew Berry.
