UNISON NEC Elections start Monday 17 April until 19 May
Every two years UNISON holds NEC elections. NEC stands for National Executive Committee. This is the highest committee in UNISON and they’re responsible for setting out how UNISON is organising.
In this election members have a lot of votes for different groups of candidates. The turnout in these important elections is very poor which is why our branch is trying to encourage our members to take part in the democracy in our union.
To encourage our members to take part in the democracy of our trade union John Burgess, Branch Secretary, Barnet UNISON explains how many votes you have in these NEC elections.
What is the NEC?
The NEC is made up of representatives elected from all of UNISON’s regions and service groups, as well as seats for four Black members, two young members and two disabled members. It has the power to act on behalf of the union and is responsible for implementing UNISON policy and delivering on the union’s objectives and priorities.
UNISON’s rule book says we have to elect our NEC every two years.
When is the ballot?
The ballot opens on 17 April 2023 and runs until 19 May 2023. The results will be announced on 8 June 2023.
