'What would Hardie do?': New move to build "alternative" political representation for trade unions

A new trade union motion is being proposed by prominent trade union activists arguing for making a clean break with Labour in wake of Jim Murphy's victory in the Scottish Labour leadership contest.

The motion, organised by the Scottish Left Project, calls for an end to financial contributions to Scottish Labour and requests serious discussion on building new political representation for the Labour movement in the 2016 Scottish elections.

Time to leave the Labour party after 35 years, says former STUC president Pat Kelly after Jim Murphy victory

"It looks like it's time to leave the Labour party," former STUC president and Scottish secretary of the PCS Union Pat Kelly has said following the election of Jim Murphy as the Scottish Labour leader.

Writing for the Scottish Left Project, Kelly spelled the end of his 35-year membership of Labour and described Murphy as "one of the most divisive figures in the Labour party". He added that the MP's Scottish Labour leader election was a "disappointment for the Labour Left and the trade unions".
