Unison by-election: fighting leadership needed
The public sector union Unison has announced the timetable for national executive (NEC) by-elections, including the local government male seat that was held by Socialist Party member Glenn Kelly.
Glenn, along with three other Socialist Party members, was witch-hunted and he has been banned from office for two years by the Unison leadership.
Glenn asks for all local government Unison branches to nominate Socialist Party member Hugo Pierre for this post.
If elected, Hugo would help fight to make the union take action to defend public sector jobs and services.
All Unison branches in the Northern region should also nominate Socialist Party member John Malcolm.
The nomination period will close on 6 August. The elections will take place from 27 September to 22 October.
