We’re proud to nominate Sharon Graham for Unite General Secretary
At tonight’s branch meeting we decided on who our branch nominate as the next Unite the Union General Secretary.
We invites all candidates to the meeting and were joined by Howard Beckett, Steve Turner and Sharon Graham. We heard excellent, impassioned speeches from all, with ambitious proposals and plans for matters such as protecting public sector jobs, uniting the union in the face of factions and divisions, responding to the changing nature of work, making a just transition to green energy and how to take on big employers and win.
Our nomination meeting/hustings will commence at 5pm on Thursday 20th May 2021 and end at 7pm. The meeting will use Microsoft Teams and all Unite CEC branch members are invited. If you wish to attend please contact the branch secretary by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org (including your full name, phone number and union membership number if available) to request the meeting link by email. The email should arrive no later than 6pm on Wednesday 19th May 2021.
Each candidate will be allowed 10 minutes to speak followed by 10 minutes responding to questions. A 10 minute gap, during which discussions may take place, will occur between candidates. Nomination will be decided by vote following the departure of the last candidate.
