• Postal constituency vacancy (1 position)


Following the successful election of Davie Robertson to the position of CWU Assistant Secretary (Postal) there is now a Postal Constituency vacant position on the NEC.  


Accordingly the NEC has agreed the election timetable and regulations for the filling of the vacant Postal Constituency NEC position.


The timetable for the election is as follows:


Nominations Open:​3 November 2015

Nominations Close:​17 November 2015 (14:00)

Dispatch ballot material from:​23 November 2015  

Close of ballot:​14 December 2015 (first post)

Result Announced:​16 December 2015​              


The Election Regulations stipulate that a copy of the regulations for these elections must be distributed to all branches in advance of the nomination process. A copy of the Election Regulations is therefore enclosed and I would be grateful if you could ensure that these are brought to the attention of the members of your branch.


The regulations will also be published on the CWU website and a copy will be issued to all candidates nominated to stand in the Election.  


Nomination Forms for this election are available on written request from the SDGS department.


Election Prize Draws


Branches are reminded that in order to protect the integrity of these very important national election’s and more importantly, ensure that the union is legally compliant with the relevant legislation covering such elections, that election prize draws should not be conducted under any circumstances unless written authorisation has been given by the Senior Deputy General Secretary.


Any enquiries regarding this LTB should be addressed to Senior Deputy General Secretary Department, CWU HQ, for the attention of Peter Metcalfe.

Telephone: 0208 971 7368, or email: pmetcalfe@cwu.org


Yours sincerely


Tony Kearns

Senior Deputy General Secretary
