Sep 12 2017

If the Government have pushed us outside the law then they will have to stand the consequences.feedback

Sep 12 2017

Nurses, care assistants, firefighters, prison officers, teaching assistants and all too often they get written out of this discussion.feedback

Sep 10 2017

We wanted to send out two messages. Firstly to our members, to say we are not going to allow the bosses to starve you back to work and secondly to send a message to employers to say 'if you think you can starve our members back to work then you better think again'. We will stand shoulder to shoulder with any workers in struggle. That is why we took the issue out of our rule book about always acting inside the law. We took that out because we know that if the bosses and the privileged elite want to push us outside the law, so be it. It won't stop us standing up.feedback

Jul 25 2017

Around the world and for generations the Mini means made in Britain. With the electric Mini being built in Cowley the tradition continues but with the added bonus that this is one of the important innovations of tomorrow.feedback

Jul 22 2017

Unless the government drops the secrecy and lets the public in on the terms of any trade discussions and prospective deal, then we remain deeply worried that what will emerge from Liam Fox's discussions with the president's team will be music to the ears of global big business but absolutely not be in the interests of ordinary people.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Single market

The government must now play its part by pursuing a 'jobs first' Brexit and securing tariff-free access to the single market and customs union. A failure to do so risks future investment and decent high quality manufacturing jobs.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Brexit

This is great news for a world-beating workforce making world-class engines and testament to the hard work of Unite's shop stewards and members. It is a good day for British manufacturing that must not be undone by a botched Brexit.feedback

May 30 2017

Conservatives have done their utmost to portray trade unions and their members as 'the enemy within', introducing regressive anti-worker laws to stop people defending themselves. That is not progress; it's giving bad bosses a free ride.feedback

May 30 2017

We invest the majority of our energies into solving disputes before there are strikes and 95pc of the time we succeed.feedback

May 16 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

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

Apr 29 2017

This positive platform from Labour is the antidote to the uncertainty and insecurity which plagues working life for millions in the UK.feedback

Apr 21 2017

Thank you for all your support. Can confirm we have won.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Labour Party

That is precisely what the media want it to be, and what the rightwing of the Labour party want it to be, and they have a puppet in Gerard Coyne that they can use. Remember, those people who are running Coyne's campaign are skilled masters of the dark arts. It is in their DNA and, though it is normal in political elections, it's quite unique that they have brought this into a trade union election.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Labour Party

Coyne's campaign is run by a cabal of West Midlands MPs who are trying to abuse Unite's democracy by fighting a proxy war against Corbyn. Now that is regrettable and I believe it will be rejected by our members. This campaign, this election, is about Unite. It has nothing to do with Corbyn.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Scottish independence

The truth is that on a personal basis I think that whoever was leader of the Labour party after 2015 would find it an unbelievable task to win the 2020 election given we have lost Scotland and it is not coming back any time soon and there are going to be boundary changes which are going to impact adversely on Labour.feedback

Apr 08 2017

But I don't think the Tories will win the next election. They might be the largest party but I don't think they will be able to form a government. And I do see a prospect of a Labour government, not in coalition, but with a Queen's speech that is supported by the SNP and Liberal Democrats and obviously what negotiations go on at the time would be down to the Labour party.feedback

Apr 08 2017

I was born in Liverpool, down by the docks, my religion was Catholic, my occupation hard knocks.feedback

Apr 08 2017

People keep asking me what's happened to Tom. I can't really give you a proper answer. I don't really know. We have not spoken since last July and it is sad that you lose friends but it is even sadder that Tom has turned on those of his friends who he relied upon in his darkest hours. He will have to answer to himself when he looks in the mirror every morning.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Labour Party

This will all be resolved by the union once this election is over. The union will be seeking answers from the Labour party on how this has been allowed to happen in this way.feedback

Mar 31 2017

BMW needs to reflect on this extraordinary vote in favour of industrial action and the real possibility that its UK workforce will strike for the first time under its ownership in the coming weeks.feedback

Mar 26 2017 - Labour Party

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

Mar 26 2017 - Labour Party

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

Mar 21 2017

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

Mar 21 2017

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

Mar 21 2017 - Fox

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

Mar 21 2017 - Twitter

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

Mar 21 2017

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

Mar 20 2017

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

Mar 20 2017 - Labour Party

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

Mar 16 2017 - Toyota

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

Mar 16 2017 - Toyota

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

Mar 16 2017 - Toyota

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

Mar 11 2017

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

Mar 07 2017 - Opel

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

Mar 06 2017 - Opel

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

Mar 06 2017 - Opel

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

Mar 06 2017 - PSA Group

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

Mar 06 2017 - Opel

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

Mar 06 2017 - Opel

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

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. 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

Mar 06 2017 - Opel

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

Mar 03 2017

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

Feb 24 2017 - PSA Group

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

Feb 17 2017 - Opel

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

Dec 18 2016 - Christmas

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

Jul 05 2011 - Siemens

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

Dec 15 2009

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
