Away from Conference floor

At this morning's meeting of UNISON's National Executive Council (NEC) we held the elections for the Presidential Team.

In accordance with a convention which is not enshrined in Rule, Chris Tansley, who has now been Vice-President for two years, will become President of UNISON at the close of today's Conference. Maureen LeMarinel, who was elected as Vice-President last year, remains as Vice-President for a further year.

We did get to vote for a further Vice-President and I was one of 12 NEC members who voted for Helen Davies, who was, as has become customary, denied the right to say anything. A far larger number voted for Lucia McKeever, who joins the Presidential Team once this afternoon's session of Conference is over.
