They have come under two main initiatives, the Wales Development Fund for Unions, which is aimed at developing policy-making processes, and the Wales Union Learning Fund, which develops learning.
The article goes on to link the fact that the Trade Unions who have benefitted from the governmen'r benevolence are in fact those same Trade Unions who have made generous contributions to various Welsh Labour Party campaigns.
I wonder how much Trade Unions like the PCS the FBU and the RMT who don't contribute to the Welsh Labour Party got from these funds? Did they get anything?... I think not!
If the Trade Unions who don't contribute to the Welsh Labour Party didn't get a share of the £2.4 million then that surely is a misuse of public funds and should be investigated by the Wales Audit Office.
