It has, over the past few months, become clear that the NUJ Left in its present form cannot survive. Major disagreements over the future of the union, and controversy over the Recovery Plan and alternative proposals, has created huge tensions which cannot be accommodated in one body.
The steering committee has therefore decided to not convene a meeting before October’s DM.
We intend to call a meeting at DM, probably on the Thursday evening, to discuss the possibility of establishing a left grouping based on aims that are much more tightly drawn than those we have followed over the past three years.
Alan Gibson, for the steering committee
