The special general conference to vote on a resolution to appoint Akanni McDowall as secretary general of the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) will now take place at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC) on Thursday.

Acting general secretary Wayne Walrond said yesterday it was switched from the union’s Dalkeith, St Michael headquarters to the LESC to facilitate the COVID-19 protocols.

“We sought to have more amenable accommodation,” he said.

Walrond reiterated that the move to install McDowall in the new position would create a constitutional crisis in the union. (MB)
