Gerard Coyne was the runner up to the incumbent, Len McCluskey, in an election for General Secretary of Unite the Union in April 2017. He made a complaint to the Certification Officer that the election, held within the fixed five year term of the incumbent, had been called unlawfully. The Certification Officer ruled against him on 4 May 2018 and on 12 June the Employment Appeal Tribunal will hear an appeal by Mr Coyne against a ruling of the Certification Officer’s ruling which turns on the interpretation of the rules of the union. Gavin Millar QC is representing Mr Coyne.
