Connect ballot approves merger with Prospect

leave a comment »

In a ballot which closed at lunchtime yesterday, Connect members have voted decisively to merge with Prospect; over 88% of those voting formally supported the proposal.

The move will create the UK’s largest managerial and professional union, representing members in the private and public sectors and across a diverse range of occupations.

Adrian Askew, Connect’s General Secretary, said:

I am delighted that our members have strongly backed plans to merge with Prospect.  This promises an exciting future and we look forward to working closely with colleagues in Prospect, sharing our expertise and our innovative approaches to trade unionism to represent and protect our members.

Connect members will be part of a dedicated sector for communications workers within Prospect, with the merger due to take place as from 1 January 2010.
