NEC, Industrial Executive & Regional Secretary Elections 2019 – Dispatch of Ballot Papers
In accordance with respective election regulations the ballots papers for the above national and regional elections are due to be posted to members from 2nd July 2019.
The purpose of this LTB is to advise branches that we have received notification from ERS that the ballot papers will now be dispatched from 3rd July 2019. This is due to the high level of printing involved in the production of the election material.
A further LTB will be sent out once we have received notification from ERS that the dispatch of ballot papers has been completed.
I would also take this opportunity to advise that the method of posting is Economy Postage.
Election Count/Members Observer
Branches will be aware that it is the policy of the CWU to invite union members to observe the election count at the offices of ERS in London.
The count takes place on 24th July 2019 and accordingly we would ask that you publicise this to your members. Members wishing to apply must not hold an elected or appointed position in the CWU.
The two observers will receive two paid days off work, subsistence and expenses and a fee of £100 after tax.
If any members of your branch wish to apply then please ask them to forward their details to Tony Kearns, Senior Deputy General Secretary, CWU, 150 The Broadway, Wimbledon, London SW19 1RX (by no later than 12th July 2019) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
