Elections are due to be held for all seats on the union’s service group executives (SGEs) in 2018.

Please note that these will be the first national UNISON elections where members will have the option to vote online or by post.

Instructions on how to vote online will be provided to members nearer the time.

The nomination period will open on Monday 29 January 2018 and close at 5pm on Friday 2 March 2018.

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.
