Trust you are well
I'm writing to express my concern and dismay about the President Paul Holmes addressing Women's Conference next week.
It is my understanding that he has now been dismissed by the Employer following allegations of Bullying and harassment of women he managed.
I also understand that the two Vice Presidents offer him their unconditional support. This is unfortunate and they should at least have the courtesy to be impartial given the complainants are themselves women and members.
All Trade Unionists as I do embrace positive change. Sadly the faction group now in control of our NEC, Time for Real Change, seem to have forgotten some of the fundamentals that is democracy and accountability.
I regret I have have had to write to you but believe that this can only reflect badly on UNISON in the long-term and we cannot allow women members over 75% to lose trust in our great union.
With Kind Regards",
