Jones, Agard in race to lead NUPW
Nominations for the July 15 election of officers for the National Union of Public Workers (NUPW) were completed yesterday and the race for the presidency is now down to a two-person sprint between Fabian Jones and Kimberley Agard.
One hour before the nomination process was closed, Agard and her team delivered their nomination paperwork to acting general secretary Wayne Walrond, who accepted them on behalf of the administration officer.
Up to the close of the nomination process, incumbent Akanni McDowall had not submitted his nomination papers, as he had been suspended by the National Council the day before.
Last Friday, Jones and his team dropped in their paperwork to the secretariat office.
Commenting on the latest development and whether it would mar the election process, Agard said that she and her team were not going to be sidetracked from their mission, which is to bring the union back to a place of respectable standing. (CLM)
