Usdaw General Secretary John Hannett said, "I am delighted to see that David is seeking to be selected as the Labour candidate for Crewe and Nantwich. He has the full support of all Usdaw’s affiliated branches. David is a hardworking, dedicated and talented Political Officer for Usdaw and I know he will be an excellent MP.
"David has taken a leading role in organising our successful campaigns, including to protect Christmas Day, extend the minimum wage to 16 & 17 year olds, to extend family-friendly rights, and protecting shopworkers from violence, threats and abuse. He has progressed these issues through negotiation with Government Ministers, Parliamentary lobbying and mobilising activists to become politically engaged, I know that David will make a first class advocate for the people of Crewe and Nantwich.
"David always puts our members first and understands that we are most successful when we are reflecting their real daily experiences and using evidence based arguments to gain new rights for hardworking people.
"We would be very sorry to see David leave his role in Usdaw, but I know he will do a first rate job as an MP. Our loss would be Crewe and Nantwich's gain."
