Demonstrate in support of Jeremy Corbyn

27 June 2016

Mick Whelan, general secretary of ASLEF, the train drivers' union, was on Sky News this morning. He said: 'ASLEF was proud to have been first trade union to nominate Jeremy Corbyn and we understood, along with hundreds of thousands others, that Labour Party members and others wanted a real alternative. Not a parliament that those on the doorstep could not tell the difference between the parties but a Labour Party open to policies for business, growth, and all levels of a society that needs to be fairer and more inclusive. Today we stand with many others supporting not only our original decision but proud that we were right and that Jeremy should be allowed to do the job we elected him to do until it is achieved.'

A demonstration in support of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party will take place this evening 27 June 2016 at 18.00 outside the Houses of Parliament, where the Parliamentary Labour Party will be meeting.

All members of ASLEF are welcome. Bring branch banners.
