What's going on here then?

Today the Times Online is reporting that discussions about a UNISON GMB merger are ongoing.

Reading the report it sounds mostly as if a journalist has had a late night conversation with the well refreshed General Secretary of another trade union.

Certainly nothing of consequence has been reported to the UNISON NEC in the past year (since we had a joint social event at last year's TUC).

So, watch this space (but don't be disappointed if it stays empty).

I am certainly not sure that - as the Times reports "officials (of the two unions) also often work together and believe their culture is broadly compatible."
