Tesco worker and Socialist Party member Amy Murphy has been elected president of the shop workers’ union Usdaw.
Socialist Party members in Usdaw
Amy won on a campaign based on giving Usdaw a fighting and democratic leadership, and fighting for policies such a £10 an hour minimum wage, an end to zero-hour contracts, supporting members who wish to take industrial action and standing up to companies’ attacks on jobs and terms and conditions.
Amy says: “I would like to thank everyone who supported me, so, so much, from the bottom of my heart. Your support has been immense. The time has come to stand up to the companies we work for.
“As president I will continue to challenge the union leadership and the bosses and be 100% behind the members.”
