More on the IUSW

Cath Elliott has another piece up on the IUSW here.

I’ve just had word that Sunday’s fringe meeting on sex workers at the GMB Congress has today been cancelled following an intervention by the IUSW’s Catherine Stephens.

Apparently Stephens wasn’t happy that a representative from the Poppy Project had been invited to speak, so she managed to convince the GMB’s equalities peeps that Poppy were an anti-union organisation who shouldn’t be given a platform at a trade union conference.

Sorry, if you could just excuse me for a minute…..


The IUSW trying to dictate to others what trade unionism is all about?
