London Central Branch member Michelle Stanistreet is running for the position of the union’s Deputy General Secretary. Freelance Organiser John Toner is the only other person to have so far declared.
Michelle is the Mother of the Daily Express and Star Chapel, as well as having been President of the union until ADM.
Applications for candidates are open until 15 May and ballot papers will then go out to members on 27 May.
London Central Branch is planning a hustings event where members can question the candidates. There is a possibility that this event will be done in conjunction with other London branches.
