Leeds TUC Backs Jeremy Corbyn

At tonight's delegate meeting (29th June 2016), Leeds TUC delegates passed the following emergency motion in support of Jeremy Corbyn

“Leeds TUC is alarmed and disgusted by the attempt, on the part of certain Labour MP’s, to try to force the Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, to resign.
Jeremy was elected with a bigger mandate than any Labour Party leader previously, whereas Labour MPs account for a very small proportion of the party’s membership.
Leeds TUC fully supports Jeremy’s determination not to stand down and calls on the TUC, Leeds Labour MPs and Leeds Labour councillors, and all trade unions to give him their full support.”
