Gerard Coyne

The Union's acting regional secretary reportedly emailed local branches this afternoon, to tell them Coyne had been relieved from his duties.

Gerard Coyne launched a bid to replace Mr McCluskey as general secretary, and was seen as a moderate candidate with anti-Corbyn views.

A man who is challenging to become the leader of the UK's biggest trade union has been suspended from his job as a regional official during the election process.

He is not thought to have been suspended as a union member.

The email said the suspension was "pending investigation into certain issues which have arisen".

Georgia election a 'wake-up call' for US Republicans
The White House, which monitored the elections closely, pushed back against the suggestion it was a referendum on Trump. Ms Handel did not mention Mr Trump during a 10-minute speech on Tuesday night, according to local media.


Mr Coyne was criticised by Mr McCluskey for being too close to a number of Labour MPs in the West Midlands who opposed Mr Corbyn's leadership. We don't know why at this stage and we won't be commenting further.

The move has been confirmed by his spokesman, although Unite has so far made no comment.

The move is the latest weird twist in the acrimonious fight for the Unite leadership, which has been described as a battle for the heart and soul of the Labour Party.

Mr Coyne is regional secretary for the West Midlands, and is up against the sitting General Secretary Len McCluskey, a prominent backer of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Quinn wrote: "The investigation is, of course, being conducted under procedure, and it should not be assumed that any offence has necessarily been committed".
