Ballot Balls-Ups: Admin Errors Plague Unite Election

A Unite member was confused on receiving a voting pack for the union’s general secretary election which mistakenly included two candidate statements by Len McCluskey – instead of one each from Len and contender Gerard Coyne. The candidate statements leaflet was a Len-only document…

Meanwhile, ballot papers were mailed to Unite members for the National Young Members’ seat on the Executive Council. That mail-shot was sent again when the Union realised it had broken the ‘spirit’ of its own rule book…

Last year Unite acting general secretary Gail Cartmail wrote of the early general secretary election:

“The decision was taken by the union’s executive council in order to save the union about £1m by aligning the ballot with that for the union’s executive council.”

A lot seems to be going on postage…
