Assistant General Secretary of the Musicians’ Union Horace Trubridge will take over the top job there later this year having won the most votes from the organisation’s members.

As previously reported, incumbent General Secretary John Smith will step down in July, and there were two contenders for the role, Trubridge and MU Executive Committee member Kathy Dyson. Voting took place from 6-27 Mar.

Commenting on his win, Trubridge said: “‘I am absolutely delighted that the members have chosen me to take the union forward following John Smith’s retirement in July. Having spent the last few months travelling around the country and talking to the members, I have a very clear vision of where the union should be heading – building on John’s fantastic work of the last fifteen years – and I am eager to get started”.

He added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Executive Committee and all the members of our union for their tremendous support, I look forward to justifying that support and meeting the difficult challenges that lay ahead”.
