I think you need to consider the 'appointed reps' scenario.

When a new organisation gets a recognition agreement it has to get some reps to further it's cause and recruit.


This is perfectly acceptable and even the Certification Officer gives a period of grace before elections are held.


You, obviously, can't elect reps before you have members.


Once the GMB branch is established and membership has been recruited they will offer themselves for election.


BASSA ignores all of the rules and continues with a Branch Secretary who no longer works for the company it's members work for.
