GMB North West & Irish Region

Ross Holden, Young Member, Europe Stay or Leave?

As part of the speaker line up set for the International Women's Day Event held at Regional Office in Liverpool, Ross Holden a Young Member discussed this important topic and also took a snap poll. The results are interesting, perhaps confirming the view held by Paul McCarthy that there would be a lot less conflict if we had more women taking part in negotiations. We have also been running a survey on the regional website this past week or so with a similar outcome.
