Broad Left candidate elected as Usdaw deputy general secretary
Dave McCrossen, the Broad Left candidate in Usdaw's deputy general secretary contest has been elected.
Dave is taking his position alongside the new president, Socialist Party member Amy Murphy. This means the shop workers' union will now have two lefts out of three among Usdaw's leading elected representatives.
Following his victory, Dave said: "I want to help build a stronger union that is fit and ready to take on the government and employers who continue to attack our terms and conditions."
Dave McCrossen is currently the divisional officer of Usdaw's Eastern region and has been involved in the Tesco Dagenham distribution pay strike, whose 24-hour walkout on 17-18 May has forced Tesco to the table, with talks at conciliation service Acas ongoing.
