Major UK Union Passes Motion Denouncing Antisemitism
One of the largest trade unions in the UK, GMB, unanimously passed a resolution that called for antisemites to “face the full force of the law.”
The motion also called out individuals out of its membership of 600,000 from a massive cross-section of industry who are found guilty of antisemitism. Motion 213, which was supported by the union’s head Gary Smith and its leadership, commits GMB to a zero-tolerance policy on antisemitic behavior.
The measure said: “This congress strongly challenges the disturbing rise in antisemitism across the UK… This unacceptable behavior and the perpetrators should be subjected to the full force of the law.”
It continued: “Where such behavior may be present from any member of GMB Union, including social media posts, our Union should take immediate action to investigate and apply appropriate measures to address this within rule.” (INN / VFI News)
