Union boss urges Labour MPs to back Heathrow expansion
Len McCluskey’s intervention before third runway vote at odds with Jeremy Corbyn’s position
Len McCluskey has written to all Labour MPs urging them to back Heathrow expansion on Monday, a move that puts the head of the Unite union directly at odds with Jeremy Corbyn.
He said they had “the opportunity to create hundreds of thousands of new jobs” by backing the government’s decision to build a third runway.
