***** This just in from the Brigade Secretary****
West Yorkshire FBU Brigade Chairs election
I just wanted to thank everyone who participated in the recent West Yorkshire FBU Chairs election, which has been held with dignity and respect. As Brigade Secretary I have been incredibly lucky to have worked with some of the finest reps in the entire Union, let alone WYFBU, and both of these latest two candidates are in that bracket. May I just congratulate both of them in the comradely manor in which they have conducted themselves.
Once again the turnout of members voting was immense with 75% of all members taking part.
I can now announce that Martyn Bairstow will become the next WYFBU Chair with immediate effect having secured 423 votes to Mick Loney’s 239.
I’m sure you’ll join me in congratulating Martyn and wishing Mick every success in the future.
