Elections will be needed for any roles where there’s more than one person standing and they do not wish to share the role, or where two people wish to share with each other and others have also stood for the same role.
Sharing roles is encouraged by UNISON but it is a choice for the members involved.
Any ballots will be carried out according to UNISONs Code of Good Branch Practice.
Nominations can only be made by UNISON members and anyone standing for a role also needs to be a UNISON member.
You can read the full rules on our website.
