Burgess gets onto Unison ballot paper

Issue No. 2472

The campaign for John Burgess in the general secretary election of the Unison union is going strong. He has now passed the requirement for 25 branch nominations.

John is branch secretary of Barnet Unison in north London. The branch has defended the union from attacks by the Tory-run council, resisted privatisation and has pledged solidarity to other workers fighting back.

The official nomination period continues until 9 October. 

Any branch of the union can nominate him at a quorate union meeting.
