The Musicians’ Union’s (MU) General Secretary, John Smith, is to stand down in July 2017 after 15 years in office. The process for electing a new MU General Secretary is currently underway.

The nomination process is now complete and two candidates will go forward to a ballot of members. These will be MU Executive Committee member Kathy Dyson and MU Assistant General Secretary Horace Trubridge. The ballot of members will be held between 6 and 27 March 2017.

MU General Secretary John Smith says:

"As my time as General Secretary of the Musicians' Union draws to a close, it's gratifying to look back and see how the MU has consolidated its position within both the music industry and the trade union movement. I took over at a time of internal political turmoil and spent my first few years stabilising the organisation.

"I then oversaw the Union's restructuring and modernisation. This was achieved successfully which allowed me to concentrate on the MU's position as an important music industry body and an independent specialist trade union. I've had a great group of people working with me over the last 15 years and I'm sure that the MU will go from strength to strength after I've retired this coming summer."
