2015 York TUC AGM

The 2015 York TUC AGM took place on Wednesday 11th March with representatives present from many of our affiliated branches.

At the meeting changes to some rules were voted on and an updated copy of the rules will be available via this website shortly. An updated affiliation form will also be made available soon.

The officers were elected for the coming year as follows:

  • Leigh Wilks was re-elected President.
  • Brian Clark was re-elected Vice-president.
  • Krzysztof Rockwell stood down as Secretary. Danny Myers was elected to the post.
  • Karen Millar was re-elected Treasurer.
  • Ian Craven was re-elected Campaigns Officer.
  • Sue Thomas was ineligible for re-election as Equality Officer. The post remains vacant.
  • Sophie Shaw stood down as International Officer. Pete Kilbane was elected to the post.
  • Reece Goscinski was re-elected Minute Secretary.
  • There remains 4 vacant executive committee positions (in addition to the officer posts).

Following the AGM, delegates heard from Labour’s PPC for the York Central constituency, Rachael Maskell, who explained to delegates what she was planning to do for working people and families in the constituency if she were elected, with particular focus on Rachael’s background in the health sector. She asked delegates to take the message back to branches and workplaces and despite needing to rush off for a train to London she stayed to answer quite a number of questions from delegates!

At the end of the delegates’ meeting, I was presented with an award for my services to the Trades Council as Secretary for the past two years. I have to say it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I have been privileged to work with a fantastic bunch of people both within and out-with the trades council. It’s bittersweet for me because I hate leaving, but I get to begin a new chapter of my life in London with my partner so that’s good too. I have agreed to stay on as webmaster for York TUC so you may see the occasional post on here from me still!
