Unison election

Issue No. 1928

Jon Rogers’ campaign for Unison general secretary has received a boost with the votes of Oxford Health branch and Oxford City branch to nominate him.

Jon is now backed by 21 branches of the union.

He needs a total of 25 nominations by Friday 10 December to secure a place on the ballot paper. Unison’s London region voted to back him last month.

“More than two thirds of branches didn’t even make a nomination last time,” says Jon. “Unison activists need to raise the issue in their branches and chase it up.

“It’s important to find out whether your branch has made a decision and, if it hasn’t, find out when it’s going to decide.”

Jon Rogers is the Unison United Left candidate for the general secretary elections.

He is standing on a platform of defending pensions, stopping privatisation and clear opposition to the occupation of Iraq.
