Not too sure that it is confirmed that he has gone to the JIB but we will see.
In my opinion his position in the union had become untenable after he publicly criticised the ongoing dispute with BA.

A more pressing concern for myself is the Metals inc. Foundry Sector.
One of our EC members found out last week that our National Officer retired on October 31st without telling anyone from the National Industrial Sector Committee.
At the moment we have no dates for future meetings and no indication of any appointment to the vacant position.
