Vote against merger

Submitted by Anon on 24 June, 2006 - 1:46

The GMB’s congress has voted overwhelmingly against merger with the TGWU and Amicus to form a new “super union”. Public arguments focused on the loss of the GMB’s independence and political and industrial tradition, as well as the fact that there is no pressing financial need for merger. But there are reports from the conference that the private arguments among delegations, in the bars etc focused more on job losses and changes in conditions for union officials and reps. See next issue of Solidarity for more..
