Usdaw backs Hazel for Deputy

Hazel’s campaign received another boost today when USDAW, one of Britain’s largest unions, announced that it is putting its support behind Hazel Blears in the race for the deputy leadership.

In a meeting this afternoon, the union’s executive endorsed Gordon Brown as leader and nominated Hazel to be his deputy.

General Secretary John Hannett said: “We are backing Usdaw member Hazel Blears as our candidate for Labour Deputy Leader because we believe she has the right blend of energy, commitment and experience to make sure that the party’s manifesto commitments are delivered.”
