In a story published on Monday, May 19th under the headline ‘Ten years later…transport union concludes delegates conference’, it was stated that Don Johnson was elected as Assistant President of the Amalgamated Transport and General Workers’ Union (AT&GW).
Mr Johnson has since indicated that he was not involved in last Sunday’s election of union officials held at the union’s Lot 46 Urquhart Street office nor was he present. He said he did not put his name up to be elected and therefore was surprised to see it being mentioned in the story. Johnson has also indicated that he had severed ties with the union since 2008.
