The post of UNISON General Secretary is one of the most important jobs in the whole of the Labour and trade union movement in Britain and the north of Ireland. UNISON is a decisive force in the public sector and is potentially extremely powerful. UNISON is also one of the biggest unions affiliated to the Labour Party and the leadership of the union is intimately tied up with the Labour Party. As such this election is as important as the UNITE General Secretary Election, and in the public sector perhaps more so.
