At least three more major branch nominations confirmed in last 24 hours
Branch nominations for Howard Beckett in the Unite general secretary election continue to roll in, with at least three further branches declaring in less than the last twenty-four hours.
Unite members in Sodexo’s offshore ‘COTA’ branch, the Forth, Port Authorities Grangemouth Dockers’ branch and the Bilfinger Offshore Branch have all now declared for Beckett – with at least Bilfinger branch unanimous in its vote:
The new nominations come just a day after the Slater and Gordon Solicitors’ branch also backed Beckett.
At the time of writing, none of the other candidates’ social media feeds have named a single branch nomination.
Skwawkbox and Socialist Telly, run by Unite members, are backing Howard Beckett. Beckett took part in a live hustings event on Socialist Telly last night to answer questions from a panel and from viewers. The other candidates were invited but did not participate. Watch in full here.
