Irish left wins union leadership


Billy Lynn, a long standing member of the Socialist Party in Northern Ireland, was elected President of the NIPSA union at it's conference last week.

NIPSA is the largest trade union in Northern Ireland representing 43,000 members across the civil and public service and the voluntary  sector.

Additionally, among motions passed at the conference was one supporting the non payment of water charges - a community campaign which is opposed by
all the political parties. The front page of the Belfast Telegraph read "Top union urges water tax boycott - Non-payment 'only way' to beat charges" and the article can be read
