Apologies to my readers for the lack of posts. It's been a busy time for me. Just got back for Plymouth and Glasgow and am preparing for my branch AGM in Leeds in the morning. As well as speaking I'll be presenting former branch secretary Dave Walton and retired area delivery rep Pete Jubb with honorary membership of leeds No. 1 branch. Hope to catch up with equality and union news in the next couple of days.
