2018 Service Group Executive By Elections

The nomination period for election of 59 of the union’s service group executive seats will open on 10 September 2018.  The nomination period closes at 5pm on Friday 19 October 2018.

The election procedures and forms are available to download below.

Branches should ensure that the names of the branch chairperson and secretary are current and up to date on the RMS. This is because nominations will only be accepted if they are authorised by the branch secretary and branch chairperson, and these names must correspond with that recorded on the RMS.

If your branch is an RMS user this information should be entered locally. If not, please contact your regional office and ask them to amend their records as soon as possible.
