Candidates for the 2020 Labour Party Leadership Election
The GMB is looking at taking on board our members' thoughts on who we believe will make the best Leader and Deputy Leader.
The timetable for the above two posts has now been finalised and is a very tight schedule, with trade unions nominating no later than 14th February.
- Because of this, we are unable to ballot all GMB members on who they would wish to nominate as we simply couldn’t turn the process around in the time.
- Instead, there will be a Special CEC Hustings on Tuesday, 21st January, at which candidates for both positions will be in attendance.
- These are vital elections that will influence the future leadership and direction of the party, so your participation is most welcome
