UNISON responds appropriately to serious allegations
Further to the last post on this blog I am informed that an investigation is under way. It is important that this process can be carried out properly and, having confidence in the investigative process which has been established, I shall not comment further at this time (other than to thank the several members of staff from the Greater London Regional Office who have been in touch yesterday and today).
Whilst UNISON is responding appropriately to evidence appearing to substantiate serious allegations, the question of what impact such matters may have had on the current election for General Secretary is a question for the Returning Officer rather than the Union.
Any UNISON member who has concerns about alleged malpractice in connection with the General Secretary election should raise these concerns with the Returning Officer by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.(Before the deadline of 11 December).
