For the first time since Labour gained the Kemptown seat (with a majority of nearly 10,000) in the general election, Jeremy Corbyn will be visiting Brighton. The labour party leader will be giving a speech at Unison’s annual conference. Unison is the second-largest trade union in the UK, with 1.3 million members from the public sector.
Come Friday morning, Corbyn will be addressing public sector staff at the Brighton Centre, after general secretary, Dave Prentis presents his keynote speech on the first day of the conference (Tuesday).
This will be Corbyn’s first major speech since the general election. Other speakers at the event will include: the Shadow Brexit Secretary, Sir Keir Starmer, the Shadow Health Secretary, Jon Ashworth and Guardian columnist, Owen Jones, who has been vocal in his support of the Labour party.
