Branch Secretary :

Meet Len McCluskey!

We are delighted to announce that Unite General Secretary Len McClusky will be speaking at our next branch meeting as follows:


6pm on Tuesday 7th February
Diskus Centre, Unite HQ
128 Theobalds Rd, London WC1X 8TN
(Map and travel directions)


Two elections crucial for our branch are taking place over the next few weeks, one for the Unite General Secretary and the other for Unite's Executive Council. The nomination period runs from 16 January until 17 February and our branch will be able to nominate four members to the Executive Council regional seats, one to the sector seat, and four to the equalities seats. 


We will use this branch meeting to decide which candidates we wish to nominate and support for election. 



Len McCluskey is standing for a third term as General Secretary and will speak at our branch meeting to ask for our support. All members are encouraged to attend this special branch meeting and we will have an opportunity to ask Len about his vision for the union should he win a further term. Len's nomination statement and podcast are available here



Our Branch Secretary, Suzanne Muna, is standing for re-election to one of the four regional seats. She will also speak at the branch meeting and be available to answer questions about her track record during her first term on the Council. Suzanne's nomination leaflet is available here.


A full list of candidates and their nomination statements are available here.


All members can attend the meetings and vote on any proposals raised at the branch. You do not have to be an elected representative. The venue is accessible, and travel and carer costs can be met, but please let us know in advance if possible if you will need these (email here). 





Before Posting

We welcome debate and discussion on our website, but we also want an open, respectful, inclusive space in which forms of abuse or personal attack will not be tolerated. Comments will be moderated and will be removed if they are found to be unduly offensive. You should also be very careful in posting information about your employer. Employers do visit the website and if you think a comment could get you into trouble for releasing confidential or sensitive information, or for bringing the employer into disrepute, please do not post it. It remains your individual responsibility to ensure that what you post is appropriate. Please therefore just give a moment's thought to what you are saying. The types of comments that are likely to be moderated are:

  • Personal abuse or attacks on an individual.
  • Information which breaches another person's right to confidentiality.
  • The use of offensive language, including swear words, or language which is racist, sexist, or otherwise breaches equalities standards.
  • Anything that might place the Branch or the wider union in legal jeopardy.
  • Adverts or information which is posted for commercial gain.
