Coming soon: service group executive by-elections

Ballots will be held to fill 59 seats on the union’s service group executives – nominations will open in September

By-elections are due to be held for 59 seats on the union’s service group executives or SGEs.

The nomination period will open on Monday 10 September 2018 and close at 5pm on Friday 19 October 2018. Procedures and nomination forms will be available to download from the UNISON website from 29 August.

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.
