Caroline Flint's campaign to become Labour's next Deputy Leader received a major boost today, as three affiliated trade unions - USDAW, Community Union and the Musicians' Union - nominated her to be Labour's next Deputy Leader.
Welcoming the endorsement, Caroline Flint said:
"I've been a proud trade unionist for over 30 years, so I'm delighted that USDAW, Community Union and the Musicians' Union are all backing me to be Labour's next Deputy Leader.
"I want the Labour Party to reconnect with working people and trade unions are a huge grassroots movement. I look forward to working with them to rebuild our party and reach out to Labour's lost voters in the coming years."
