Co-operation is always a good aim.

A "joint position on jobs" is going to be difficult while Labour remains a growthist party.

Corbyn's re-election is bad news for the Green Party. We will lose votes, council seats and members to him. This year in Norwich we lost 4 of the 5 seats we were defending and only won the other by 31 votes.
