AGMs were a success!

Further to the three successful and quorate aggregate Annual General Meetings I am as the returning officer writing to advise the outcome of the elections for officer positions.

The only position that required a vote was the position of Branch Secretary, following the counting of the voting papers I can advise that Grant Coltart has been duly elected as the Branch secretary for the next 12 months.

I have attached a list of the officer positions showing which posts have been filled – a warm welcome to those officers – and a note of the vacancies which hopefully the Branch can fill.

I would like to thank everyone who participated and single out a special thanks for Ivanna for getting papers out, to Sue for taking the minutes, Alasdair for dealing with the voting and registration and my colleague John Gallacher for his support and speech to the meetings.

I hope we can take the branch forward in a positive way and pull together to make UNISON Dumfries & Galloway branch the most effective trade union branch in the south-west of Scotland.

More than 18,000 people joined the UK’s biggest union during our a month-long recruitment and retention drive that saw the whole union – at branch, regional and national level – working together.
