Gerard Coyne [Image: PA].

It isn’t very often an organisation has to deliver a public rebuke and warning to one of its own members who is seeking high office within that organisation via a democratic vote.

But UNITE the Union has delivered just such a slapdown to General Secretary candidate Gerard Coyne – even though he is not directly mentioned.

Here’s the statement:

The activities criticised in the statement were carried out by Mr Coyne – as you can see by visiting this article.

The union’s executive council stops short of taking sides, but it is to be hoped that union members will take note of the nature of the behaviour that has been criticised and vote accordingly…

Against Mr Coyne.
