Large union donation

The Herald reports:

Labour and the Green Party will get a boost to their respective election campaign war chests from a major union.

E Tu (previously the EPMU and the Service and Food Workers unions) has announced it will donate $120,000 to Labour and $30,000 to the Greens, roughly the same amounts given ahead of the 2014 election.

The E Tu union is very powerful within Labour. It now represents over half the affiliate vote and has a decisive say on issues such as the leadership.

If the unions did not get a vote in the last leadership election, Grant Robertson would have beaten Andrew Little by 56% to 44%.
