I am very pleased and grateful to have the support of UNISON.
Statement from Nathan Oswin, UNISON East Midlands Political Officer:
'UNISON recognise the importance of having strong Labour candidates who can help further the fight for employment rights and be a strong voice for the citizens of the East Midlands in Europe. Rory would be a hard working and dedicated MEP who would work tirelessly for the good of UNISON members across the East Midlands.'
'Rory has and continues to show his commitment to public services and UNISON knows this would continue as a Labour MEP.'
'UNISON recommends its members to mark Rory Palmer as their first choice candidate.'
