Pushing party reforms at annual conference would be a bit rushed, says firefighters union leader

Matt Wrack, secretary general of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU), said it would be “a bit rushed” for Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer to bring his party’s reforms to the fall conference.
The union leader, who was part of a liaison organization between the unions and the Labor Party (Tulo) this week to discuss the proposals with Sir Keir, told BBC Radio 4 Today program: “I think the first thing to say is what do people want from the Labor Conference?”
“We have a coming jobs crisis, a coming standard of living crisis, an energy crisis and so on.
“If the Labor Party is to gain power and take on the Tories, I think people have to see the Labor Party standing up for the workers and that’s what we want, and I’m sure that’s what the Labor voters want hear – not a debate about how we elect a leader or select Labor MPs, and obviously how that will make people wonder who to vote for. “
Mr. Wrack added, “The Tulo organization, the 12 affiliated unions, agreed that we want consensus and the only way for us to have consensus is to meet with each other. And it is not planned to meet.
“The conference starts today, so it seems a bit rushed to try to bring in some major proposals on the Labor Party constitution in one morning. “
