UNISON NEC ELECTIONS 2017
The union’s national executive council (NEC) is elected by members to speak on their behalf.
NEC members are elected by all members of UNISON via a postal vote. Members elect candidates to represent their region and their service group. There are also additional seats for Black members and young members.
As with all other UNISON elections, the union’s principles of “proportionality and fair representation” means that some seats are reserved for women and low-paid members, so that the make-up of the NEC fairly represents the wider union.
Elections take place every two years, with members receiving a ballot paper with a prepaid envelope to return it to an independent scrutineer (an independent person who checks the ballot is fair and counts the votes).
NEC members are elected for 2 years and elections take place this year
and the ballot opens 3 april -20th april .
