On behalf of the branch officers and branch committee, I would like to thank all those outgoing branch committee members who did not stand for re-election for their efforts on behalf of the branch and UCU members at LJMU. In particular thanks are due to Chris McMahon, outgoing branch chair, for his contribution and hard work over the years.
