TSSA welcomes new Labour General Secretary

26 May 2020

Labour-affiliated transport trade union TSSA today welcomes David Evans to the post of Labour Party General Secretary.

 TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes said: “We send our congratulations to David Evans on his appointment as Labour Party General Secretary, succeeding in a strong field of candidates.

“We thank the previous General Secretary, Jennie Formby, for her leadership and commitment to our Party and wish her well for the future.

“Now is the time to unify our Party and drive forward our progressive policy agenda, which of course includes important and popular ideas such as public ownership of our railways.

“I’m sure that David Evans will work with all parts of our Party to bring our message of hope to communities across our country and to deliver a Labour government. His support for initiatives such as community organising will be important as we continue to rebuild after being out of power for over a decade.

“As we continue in our fight against coronavirus, we need a strong opposition and we need Labour’s positive vision for our jobs, our communities and our environment to be heard. I really look forward to working with him.”
