Call to withhold union dues over Labour attack

Trade unions in the Island are being urged to consider stopping donations to the Labour Party after Ed Miliband's attack on offshore financial centres.

The call comes from the Celtic League after widely publicised criticism by the Labour leader of secrecy over the ownership of companies in offshore jurisdictions.

Mr Miliband said he would demand to 'see the books' of Crown Dependencies including the Isle of Man, within six months of a Labour government taking office, if it wins May's general election.

The Celtic League has described the attack as 'flagrant electioneering' which damages the jobs prospects of Manx workers and their families.

Director of Information Bernard Moffatt says unions here should think twice about allowing members' levies to help fund Labour's campaign.
