Unite: Vital that Co-op members have a voice in process

The vote for reform of the Co-operative Group is a welcome step in the right direction, the national officer of the Unite union said, after members voted in favour of a major overhaul of the board. Adrian Jones said he hoped it would put the group on the road to stability:

Going forward it is vital that our members and employees have a voice in the reform process for it to succeed and ensure the Co-op Group has a fighting chance while retaining its unique values and ethos.
