I'm supporting Carole Hanson for the NEC Female HE seat because it was her branch that won an inspired campaign to save their Nursery last year. When we were fighting hard to save ours, and Westminster Uni were doing the same, Brighton UNISON branch scored an important victory that showed all other branches what we need to hear - that occasionally we can win!
I've since been impressed not only with their high density in Brighton UNISON branch, and their continuing resistance against job cuts at Brighton Uni, but also a strong engagement in their local community campaigns against cuts generally.
We need a fighting, democratic union, and this new era calls for a new leadership to be given a chance. Please nominate Carole Hanson.
