Thank you to everyone who voted for and campaigned to help elect PCS Independent Left candidates to the National Executive Committee. We are now very happy to say that we have John Moloney as Assistant General Secretary and Bev Laidlaw, Phil Dickens and Chris Marks on the NEC.
Whilst the turnout in the elections remains far lower than anybody should be content with, it has increased from last year along with the share of votes for IL. This shows that, at least amongst those who voted, there is an appetite for change in the union.
Bringing that change is the real work. Simply having more IL people on the NEC, whether three or thirty, isn’t enough. We need to rebuild the strength of the union from the ground up whilst addressing the barriers imposed from the top and re-orienting towards the rank and file.
This isn’t the task for a few of us, but for everyone who wants an effective, fighting union. Get in touch, and get involved!
