Glasgow Momentum CfS/ notes that both Unite (2016 Policy Conference) and the Scottish
Left Review new support the open reelection of Labour MPs. Open reelection is essential
to ensure that Labour MP’s and candidates represent the views of the membership, the
overwhelming majority of whom are support Corbyn. To that end, the incoming executive is
instructed to drag a model motion in support of open reelection and to coordinate and
organise support for the submission of said motion to Glasgow CLPs.
Glasgow Momentum recognises that the fight to defend workers’ rights if France against
President Macron’s attempt to amend the Labour code is important to workers throughout

rights under the current Labour code and we hope further issues in the course of the
struggle. Glasgow Momentum will take part in organising meetings, demonstrations and
other solidarity with the struggle for workers’ rights in France.
