UNITE to have one General Secretary

Tony Woodley has announced his intention to stand down as General Secretary much earlier than originally planned, so that Len McCluskey becomes sole General Secretary from 31st January 2011, earlier than planned. I think this is a really good decision, which will accelerate the process of UNITE moving on at a much faster pace than has been possible since the merger.

Len McCluskey plans to ask the Executive Council (EC) to appoint Tony Woodley to a senior position working on the "100% campaign" part of our strategy for growth until his normal retirement date.
