Horace Trubridge confirmed as the Musicians' Union's next General Secretary

Horace Trubridge has won the Musicians’ Union’s (MU) general secretary election.

The results of the election were announced on Monday. The ballot of members was held between 6th and 27th March 2017 and there were two candidates: MU executive committee member Kathy Dyson and MU assistant general secretary Horace Trubridge.

Trubridge will take over from current general secretary John Smith, who is standing down in July after 15 years in office.

“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,” commented Trubridge.
