Speaking to CWU News this morning (28th April), Erin Massey thanked members and said: “For me, to be the first woman elected to this role over here in Northern Ireland is an honour.
“And in congratulating all those elected within their respective regions, I want to especially mention my fellow female comrade Ruth Harris, the new South East Region secretary. Together, we have changed the proportionality at the regional table, which now has two regional secretaries for the first time. This is a credit to our union as a whole.
“Here in Northern Ireland, unfortunately, there are many divides for one reason or another in all walks of life. There is a lot of hard work to be done, yet responsibility also lies with everyone within this region. We all need to understand that we need to make things happen together. Everyone under the CWU banner, all constituencies need to work together to do our absolute best regionally, for all concerned and to strengthen our union.”
