UNITE National Executive Council Elections

Following the merger of Amicus and TGWU to form UNITE, elections are under-way for the first Executive Council of the new union. Members will receive ballot papers and voting will take place between 3rd and 28th March.
Please read the information with the ballot paper and use your vote. The NEC is the governing body of the union and its composition will have a significant impact on the future direction of your union.
All members in the north-west will have a vote for one north-west regional seat. All working members will have votes for four women’s seats. Members employed in the IT industry will not get a vote for an industry sector seat, because Ian Allinson was unopposed for this position.
The Greater Manchester IT Branch made the following nominations:

  • North-West Regional Seat: Pat Coyne
  • Women’s Seats: Jane Stewart, Louise Cousins, Terri Miller and Dawn McAllister
