In a further development in the row, a Welsh Labour spokesman had this to say .
The spokesperson went on to say
Andy Richards , leader of Unite ,had described Plaid's call for a coalition of left wing groups to challenge austerity measures " a publicity stunt "
But Plaid Cymru AM Rhodri Glyn Thomas hit back accusing Mr Richards of putting his own political interests above those of his members.
The Am went on further to say
Andy Richards, Secretary of Unite, Wales, is claiming Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood's call to form a coalition of left wing groups as "an opportunistic publicity stunt."
Mr Richards went on to explain:
The term 'Plan B' has become political shorthand for the notion that the UK Government's cuts programme should be replaced with an alternative that focuses more on growing the economy.
Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood thinks there's enough of a consensus amongst groups on the left of politics that they should form their own coalition to oppose that of the UK. But many of the organisations on the left have strong links to Labour - so how successful will she be?
