Last quote by Len McCluskey

I don't see Labour winning, I think it would be extraordinary. I believe Labour can hold on to 200 seats or so and it will be a successful campaign. It will mean that Theresa May will have had an election, will have increased her majority but not dramatically.feedback

Len McCluskey quotes

Over the next 15 months there will be answers to whether Labour's appeal to the electorate was improving.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn will be involved in debates and discussions on where the party is going - but give him a chance and let us see where that takes us.feedback

The fact is that I have never had a private meeting with Lansman about anything in my life, let alone on this alleged scheme. Why the untruth? Watson wants to control the Unite election. He is not ready to leave the matter in the hands of the ordinary working people who make up our union. He has been masterminding a nasty tabloid-style campaign against me - standard fare in political elections, alas, but something new for the trade union movement.feedback

His transparent plan is to install a puppet who can take the union back to the bad old days when unions like the one he worked for were in the pockets of employers and failed to put their members' interests first.feedback

I know Tom. I am still proud to have privately and publicly supported him when he was under great personal strain because of his courageous campaign against the Murdoch empire. How sad then that he should turn on those of us who supported him in his darkest hour, and how sad that his candidate, Gerard Coyne, should now be using The Sun, to attack his own union – a rotten tabloid and an instrument of the establishment that has led the charge against the working class and trade unionism for generations. Such behaviour is what happens when values are trashed by ambition.feedback

Indeed, we have had unprecedented interference from Labour party politicians in this election. They are trying to turn Unite's democracy into a party political football. It won't be allowed to happen but it at least provides Unite members with a looking glass to what the future of a union led by an agent of the right wing would look like.feedback

There is another world in our movement, alas. A world of skulduggery, smears and secret plots. That is where you will find Tom Watson. When Labour has needed loyalty he has been sharpening his knife looking for a back to stab. When unity is required, he manufactures division.feedback

Our sole focus has to be a general election. Enough is enough. This has got to to stop. I'm afraid there are some people who don't have our electoral interests at heart, and we've got to deal with it.feedback

Ensuring that when Jeremy ceases to be leader, and at some point he will cease to be leader, I hope at a time of his own choosing, we have a fair election where candidates who have support among the membership can get on the ballot paper and we will be able to vote for them.feedback

The car industry is one of the jewels in our nation's manufacturing crown, Government ministers must work with us to keep it that way.feedback

The confirmation of this platform upgrade at Toyota is further evidence that the UK car industry and the people who work in it are among the best in the world at what they do. Their skill and efficiency right through the supply chain to the production line is second to none. They need to know that the Government has their back and will do whatever is necessary to ensure new models and new investment keeps coming to Britain.feedback

With discussions set to start on the replacement of models such as Vauxhall's Astra and decisions due on BMW's electric Mini, it is vital that Government ministers calm nerves by stating they will secure tariff-free access to the European single market and customs union in Brexit negotiations. This must also be backed up with investment in the UK's supply chain and new technology to ensure the UK remains a world leader in car manufacturing.feedback

The uncertainty caused by Brexit is harming the UK auto sector. We need every assistance from the government to give this sector a fighting chance.feedback

It is critically important that Vauxhall production remains with the UK.feedback

What is being said at the moments by PSA Peugeot Citroen is that they are going to honour all of our agreements. Now, that means that the current model at [the UK plants] Ellesmere Port and Luton will continue. But, the real challenge to us is to make certain that we get new models, and that is about going forward, making sure that we have a future – a long-term future for our plants.feedback

The next six months will be crucial in discussing the next model for Ellesmere Port. We'd like to be in a position certainly by the end of next year to know what that model was so that we can begin to prepare for it.feedback

While initial discussions with the PSA Group have been relatively positive, our priority now is to ensure a long-term future for our plants and the tens of thousands of workers depending on them.feedback

Our plants are the most productive in the European operation. The brand is strong here, the market for the products is here, so the cars must be made here.feedback

It is vital that those who have saved hard for their retirement receive the benefits to which they are entitled. Unite will not allow our members to lose out, not by a penny.feedback

I have sought and have received urgent assurances from the PSA Group and General Motors as to their intentions towards the pensions of the UK workforce.feedback

Unite requested that BMW lift its deadline for the pension scheme's threatened closure so that talks could be conducted in a meaningful way. Unfortunately that perfectly reasonable request has been refused by BMW bosses, who are in danger of miscalculating the growing anger among its UK workforce. BMW bosses would do well to heed the growing sense of betrayal over their broken pension promises, which have already seen 96pc of workers saying they would take industrial action in a consultative ballot.feedback

He talked in terms of not being here to shut plants. That's not his nature.feedback

It does seem as if Brexitis a factor in this decision as GM does rely heavily on its links throughout the EU supply chain. Without a shadow of doubt, U.K. car plants must be offered the same assurances as those given by the government to Nissan.feedback

Unite will work tirelessly to defend them, to get this dispute solved and to win them the fair and decent treatment these workers deserve.feedback

It is a tragedy because these redundancies would have been needless if the government really cared about British manufacturing and British skills.feedback

The problem is the impositions that have been placed on them (the crew) by British Airways management. These are impositions that we believe are not necessary.feedback
