So, there’s some number of unions around that don’t have many members. NUM is perhaps 100 active members at present.
So, who gets to be General Secretary, President, and how? And there’re many more than just that one.
Would it be possible to become General Secretary, or President, of a number of them and thus gain a number of nice fat cat salaries?
I would guess not as no one’s quite stupid enough to leave such remunerative posts vacant. But how would one ind out and then scheme anyway?
Note that, even with no current members, there could well still be agreements with pensions funds and the like to make the posts remunerative.
