Mr. John East. a member of the Ilford Borough Council, who was expelled from the Amalgamated Engineering Union for alleged violation of Union Rules. has had his appeal to the Executive Committee, rejected.
Mr. East has now to put his case to the Final Appeals Court of the union, which consists of eleven rank and file members. This Appeals court meets once a year in the month of October.
The Association of Catholic Trade Unionists is urging that the elections for the post of Assistant General Secretary of the A.E.U. (a post for which Mr. East had been nominated, prior to his expulsion) should he postponed until his final appeal is heard.
