I got my ballot paper at home on Saturday and have voted and posted for Christina (number two in candidate list) to be our next UNISON General Secretary. From my personal interaction with her as a NEC member and branch secretary, she is the best candidate but also it is important that we smash the glass ceiling and that it is about time that a women is elected as the first ever General Secretary of the top 5 UK trade unions.
She is the only female candidate standing in a union were one million of our 1.3 million members are women.
