GSG 13-21 Communications Workers’ Union appoints new General Secretary
The National Executive Council at its meeting today announced the appointment of Mr Seán Mc Donagh as General Secretary Designate of the union, following the recommendation of an interview panel which was comprised of members of the National Executive Council and overseen by the ICTU. Seán is presently the Deputy General Secretary and he will take up his appointment on my retirement later this year.
As you will know Seán has over 30 years’ experience at the highest levels of worker representation and dispute resolution in the communications sector. Seán started his career as a postman in Galway becoming Branch Secretary of the Galway Postal Branch, then a member of the National Executive of the CWU, Vice-President and President of the CWU (1997-1998), Industrial Officer, National Officer and, since 2017, Deputy General Secretary.
I wish to express my sincerest congratulations to Seán and his wife Dolores and wish him every success as he leads our great union into the future.
