Congratulations to every one who has been successsful in the elections well done to my close friends Katrina Quirke and Lesley McClean. Commiserations to Gus I am sure you will be back next year.
Why dont we start a debate on the elections? What do you think about the NEC elections?
What do you think to the turn out?
Something for people to think about, we have lost the only black executive member we had.
Can we really say that as a union we are representative of our membership? Or is this democracy in action?

Last weekend I led the CWU delegation to the TUC Black Workers Conference in Scarborough. On behalf of the Union I'd like to thank Gus, Colin, Sylvia, Bola, Ian, AJ, Graham and Pauline for attending and for promoting CWU and TUC policies on race equality in trade unions and the wider society. It's a privilege to know and represent you all. Congratulations also go to Graham, Gus and Ian for accepting Harry Ramsden's Challenge. Another victory for the CWU.
