Unison NEC elections: Vote for a fighting democratic union

Elections for Unison's national executive (NEC) start on 22 April and run until 24 May. Members of the Socialist Party and members of the Unison United Left are standing in the seats below.

Glenn Kelly, who is standing for the male seat in the local government service group, says in his election address:

"The Con-Dem government is by far the greatest challenge facing workers for decades.

"Their agenda is to destroy public services and this has to be met with the full might of our trade union, linking up with all other trade unions and wider community groups. I believe the NEC has a responsibility to organise and plan a coordinated fightback and not to leave branches to fight alone.

"This must involve the calling of coordinated and generalised strike action in defence of jobs and services. I believe that the union should immediately call a special conference of all branches to plan our national fight against the cuts.

"National action to stop the jobs and services slaughter. No more pay freezes. Not a penny to be given to councillors attacking our members."
