PCS executive election results

Issue No. 2201

The elections to the PCS national executive saw minor gains for the right wing 4themembers group.

They gained three positions on the executive at the expense of the centre-left Democracy Alliance.

The left still has a big majority on the executive, but the vote, and the low turn-out, is a warning about the continuing need to take the union’s fights forward.

Paul Williams, a Socialist Worker supporter on the executive, was one of those to lose, though he only missed out by five votes.

Left wingers were re-elected to the president and vice-president positions.
