A war of words…

paul-gifDear Colleague.

Down load our latest flyer here…16th Feb 2009

As we near the date when members will receive ballot papers, the war of words between the other three candidates intensifies.

The application of anti-trade union legislation has been used to force this election upon us and sections of the press have been used to attack our trade union during the election process.

Members can expect more of these tactics to be used as we approach the 16th February as the exchange of insults continue.

fight1Throughout our campaign we have concentrated on the issues and have not sought to attack any individual personally. We have said that this election is about the future of our union and not about individuals. That is our commitment and we will deliver with it.

We have laid out the values that we believe are fundamentally important if we are going to develop our union and take it forward.

Transparent: in all our dealings.

Open: to new ideas and new thinking.

Supportive: of members, activists, staff and officers.

Our members and their families are facing difficulties like never before. We need to be there supporting them through this economic crisis.

An internal war of words will not save one job or protect terms, conditions and pensions.

On 16th February 2009 you will have your opportunity to vote for a new General Secretary – don’t waste that opportunity.
