The UNISON Cymru Wales Labour Link Committee are proud and pleased to have nominated Jane Gebbie to be selected as the Labour Party candidate for the Vale of Glamorgan constituency at the next General Election.

 Labour Link Chair Dan Beard said,

“Jane Gebbie is a person that we can rely on to passionately defend public services in Parliament. She is a seasoned campaigner who always stands up for the vulnerable in our society and is not afraid to fight on their behalf. Jane knows only too well how Tory austerity measures have decimated communities and destroyed hope for many. The Vale of Glamorgan is now a key marginal seat and I know that if selected Jane will devote all her time to ensure it returns to Labour at the earliest opportunity”

Jane Gebbie said,

“I am so grateful for the confidence and support that UNISON has in my ability to represent the people from the Vale of Glamorgan in Parliament. I have been lucky enough to have spent much of my life working and living in the Vale and I am determined to put something back into those communities. The Labour Party increased their vote across the country in last year’s General Election which demonstrated that socialist policies are popular. I will be determined to regain this seat for the Labour Party if selected. Support from UNISON means so much to me as I know we share the same values and can campaign together to ensure everyone in the Vale of Glamorgan benefits from having a Labour MP who will look after their interests.”
