General Secretary Ballot Opens 28th October. Use Your Vote!
UNISON is holding an election to choose who will be the next General Secretary to lead the union for the next five years. The General Secretary is the most senior role in the union and is the public face of UNISON at home and abroad.
Now it’s time for UNISON members to choose the person who leads the union. All current members, including retired members, who were in membership on 28 June 2020 have the right to vote.
