Unite Exec Elections

For those of you who are fellow members of the Unite trade union, there are Executive Council elections coming up.

The timetable is a follows:

Nominations Period 10th January – 7th February 2011
Last date for Receipt of nominations 14th February 2011

Count 16 - 17 April 2011

Details are here, including a running update of who is seeking nomination:

To work out who NOT to vote for or nominate, just reverse-engineer the list published by United Left - http://unitedleft.org.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=5&Itemid=24
- and vote for people not on it.

Thanks for the plug for our website. I'm sure some of your readers will want to vote for a broad left set of candidates who are willing and able to lead the union in a progressive direction. While you may think all we have to do is wait for the next Labour Government, we, like our new General Secretary Len McCluskey, think there is a big job to do now. We need to stop the ConDem attacks in their tracks.
