DESPATCH OF BALLOT PAPERS
This LTB is to advise Branches that we have received confirmation from ERS that the ballot papers for the CWU Assistant Secretary (TFS 2) were handed over to Royal Mail late yesterday evening.
I would also take this opportunity to advise that the method of posting is Royal Mail Economy.
This information is being provided to assist those Branches that are intending to send out a corresponding mailing to their members.
CWU ELECTION MEMBERS OBSERVERS
Branches will be aware that the regulations for the above election contain the following statement:
“Returned ballot papers will remain unopened in their envelopes until the close of ballot. Two lay CWU members (who do not hold any elected or appointed CWU position) will be selected as observers. The Observers together with the Senior Deputy General Secretary will attend the start of the count of the ballot papers. Their sole responsibility will be to ensure that the envelopes are unopened prior to the commencement of the count, after which the Scrutineer shall arrange to count the number of valid votes cast for each candidate. The Scrutineer will declare the results of the election as soon as possible after the completion of the count.”
The purpose of this LTB is to seek your branch assistance in publicising the information detailed below to all members of your branch.
