Appointment of Assistant General Secretary

All UNISON email users received, in the past hour or so, an email message sent on behalf of Bob Abberley, Assistant General Secretary, as follows;

"As the senior officer conducting the interviews held on 11th and 12th November, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Liz Snape, Director of Policy and Public Affairs, as AGS Communications, Campaigns and Policy.

This post carries responsibility for the strategic development and implementation of UNISON's campaigning strategy, policy development and implementation strategy, external communications strategy, including media and press, and has overall responsibility for the general and affiliated political funds. 

This appointment is the second made to the new senior management structure, and interviews for the other three AGS posts will be held over the next two weeks.

Once the appointment process is complete the General Secretary will consult with the appointees and confirm the commencement date of the new structure. 

Bob Abberley"

Though I personally believe that such important leadership roles should be elected rather than appointed, all UNISON members will I am sure wish Liz well in this challenging role.

True Rule Book anoraks may wonder about the implications both of these tidings and of the identity of their bearer for UNISON Rule E.4.2...
