At a meeting on Friday 4 September the Northern Ireland regional committee nominated Dave Prentis for general secretary in the forthcoming general secretary elections.
Speaking about the nomination, joint regional convenors Denis Keatings and Gabrielle Carton said, “Dave has set out a clear and comprehensive vision for the future of UNISON in Northern Ireland. At a time when our members are facing the deepest and most offensive threats to their jobs and livelihood and at a time when UNISON is under major attack from the Tory government, we need an experienced leader at the helm. We fully support the regional committee’s decision.”
The nomination period runs from 2 September to 9 October during which time branches and other bodies can make a nomination.
