• TUC Congress

• Labour Party Conference        

The NEC has agreed the 2018 election arrangements for the National delegations listed above. Accordingly please find attached the Election Regulations, Nomination Forms and Candidates Consent and Biographical Detail Form for these elections.

Labour Party Conference – 2018

Would Branches please note that the relevant section of The Labour Party’s procedural rules regarding delegates to Annual Conference reads as follows:

(Chapter 3, Clause 1, Rule 4F) – All delegates must have been individual members of the Party for at least 12 months at the closing date set for the receipt of names of delegates.

Accordingly in order to be eligible to be a delegate, a nominee must have been a member for 12 months at the Labour Party closing date for applications, which in respect of 2018 is 22 June. Therefore if any nominee joined the Labour Party after 22 June 2017 then unfortunately they are not eligible to be a delegate at Annual Conference 2018.

Additionally would branches please ensure that all candidates for the Labour Party delegation complete sections B, C, D, E, G and J of the attached Labour Party Annual Conference delegate application form, and attach this to the candidate consent form which must be returned to CWU HQ by the closing date for CWU nominations.

The details of the Conferences are as follows:

• TUC Congress, Manchester, 9-12 September 2018

• Labour Party Conference, Liverpool, 23-26 September 2018

The Timetable for the elections is:

Nominations open:                 4 May 2018

Nominations close:                18 May 2018 (14:00)

Despatch ballot papers:        25 May 2018

Ballot closes:                           8 June 2018 (14:00)
