Report by Ruth Hayes – representing the Community Youth Workers and Not-for-Profit sector
The meeting opened with tributes to Unite’s Director of Finance, Ed Sabisky, who had sadly passed away the previous week. He had done an enormous amount to ensure that we were financially stable, to tackle the pension deficit and to ensure that we had a strategic approach to our finances for the future. He had also been a great colleague and committed to the Trade Union movement. Tributes were received from many lay members, Andrew Murray and Len McCluskey. Officers shared their memories during their reports.
