1. Unison is going to OPPOSE the NEC's wait + see Brexit position, then SUPPORT motion 13, and ABSTAIN on motion 14 - in other words, a huge union is breaking with Corbyn's position on Brexit today and wants to push the party to back Remain immediately
2. Might sound like gobbledygook, but it matters a lot - this shifts the balance of the votes and makes it more likely that conference, which is king, decides today to back Remain now - Corbyn has said on the record he'll abide by what is decided here
3. So the conference votes late this afternoon are massively important - Unison's decision is pretty straightforwardly down to a belief that Labour is more likely to win the election with a clear position
4. It's another difficult moment for party leadership - very significant that the biggest union is going against Corbyn's position
