Conference security deal breaches Labour rules, says GMB

The GMB has said the refusal by Showsec to sign a union agreement means it should not be given the job of providing security at the Labour Party conference.

Roger Jenkins, GMB national officer for the security industry, told the BBC that employing the company would be against Labour policy.

The union is calling on the party to find an alternative contractor for the event in Liverpool to avoid it being "scuppered".

Labour sources said they were confident the conference would go ahead as planned.
