Michelle Stanistreet elected DGS
4 July 2008
NUJ members have voted for Michelle Stanistreet to become the union’s deputy general secretary.
The ballot result became known today, although she cannot be confirmed in post until the union's National Executive Committee formally endorses the election result on July 24.
The deputy general secretary vacancy arose after the retirement of John Fray, who worked for the union for 18 years.
Michelle is a chapel rep at Express Newspapers where she has worked since 1999. She holds the National Newspapers and Agencies seat on the NUJ NEC and was NUJ president for 2007-2008.
