Positions voted on were:
Kevin Donnelly & Dave Allan
Steve Miller & Steve Bush
Area Organising Team:
Some areas are vacant and will be filled by a willing volunteer. The areas vacant are East Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and Teesside.
The purpose of the organising team will be to inform of any political and industrial activity in their area so we can be more proactive in securing support for campaigns or disputes.
Promote unite policy on CLP and Trades Councils.
Identify organising opportunities for the union
Recruit new supporters to United Left and ratify new members to allow attendance at next meeting.
The Co-chairs will be looking at United Left Founding Statement with a view to making improvements.
The idea behind joint co-ordinators is to share workload and divide work up between industrial and political spheres.
