At present, the GEC is narrowly controlled by a bureaucratic clique grouped around John Aitkin. This group claims to be on the left, but its record is one of inertia and nepotism. If they retain their hold, Woodley will be isolated and unable to enact the many positive proposals he championed during his successful campaign for the General Secretary's position.
The genuine Broad Left within the TGWU is therefore calling on branches to nominate those candidates who support the Woodley 'Agenda for Change'.
