Unite Activist George Tapp

YOU may have heard of the incident involving UNITE activists at a demonstration in Manchester which lead to George being seriously injured. Details of the incident can be found here:
The Morning Star will include a full account of the incident, including an interview with George this Thursday, and I would encourage you to make sure that all reps and activists are made aware of this . George is in hospital in Manchester, and is unlikely to be able to work again due to the severity of his injuries.

George’s union UNITE are ensuring that George is given every support , and Mick Whitley , Regional secretary of UNITE is dealing directly with George’s case, as are UNITE solicitors.

Salford Trades Council have established an appeal fund for George, and donations and messages of support should be sent to Salford TUC George Tapp Appeal, 84 Liverpool Road , Eccles, Salford M30 0WZ.

Please make branches , activists and reps aware of this.

Report from Kara Stevens of UNITE the Union.
