Election for General Secretary moves a step closer
Posted by jerryhicks4gs on August 29, 2008
The challenge to Derek Simpson’s right to remain in office without an election, which not so long ago was described as having ‘no chance’ by detractors, took a big step forward this week as Unite the union (Amicus Section) has been given until the 12th September 2008 to provide its defence and arguments to the Certification Office.
This represents a step closer to the prospect of an election for General Secretary having to be called.
Indeed it is a giant leap when compared to the union’s statement back in May when they wrongly stated that they had been informed that they had ‘no case to answer’ as the complaint had been rejected.
