The future of our union is in your hands. It’s time to decide who will represent you on UNISON’s national executive council (NEC).
But time is running out. Voting closes on 19 May.
Members of UNISON have a direct say on who will work with UNISON’s general secretary to steer our union through these difficult times.
Your vote is essential in ensuring we have the right leaders making crucial decisions for all of us. And from the very close results of previous elections, we do know that every vote matters.
NEC members are ordinary UNISON members. By voting for candidates who share your priorities, you help elect leaders committed to enhancing your experience as a member.
That’s why it is so important that as many members vote as possible, ensuring that a small, vocal minority will not represent the views of the vast majority of members.
So, please, if you haven’t already voted, here are our three steps to NEC heaven:
- Find your election pack. If you can’t find it, you can order another one by ringing the ballot helpline from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday, on 0800 0 857 857. The last date you can request a new pack is 15 May.
- Read the information from the candidates and make sure you’re voting for a member whose views you share and agree with, and who you think will work in your best interests.
- Send your vote in the Freepost envelope provided. It must arrive by 19 May.
But the most important thing to remember is to vote.
Don’t leave it to everyone else. Take a few minutes and help your union be the best it can be.
