T&G union delegates vote for merger with Amicus – full ballot to follow

About 300 union activists have voted for a merger between Amicus and the Transport and General Workers’ Union (T&G) in May 2007.

The so-called ‘super-union’ would incorporate two million UK workers from two of the biggest unions.

The vote follows a special T&G meeting that debated how a merger would affect the trade union movement and union links with the Labour Party.

The super-union proposal will be balloted in February of next year.

T&G general secretary Tony Woodley said the merger represented “working class unity”.

Amicus has 1.2 million members and the T&G has 800,000.
