North-West: UK Consultative Forum by-election

The company is inviting you to vote in a by-election for a vacant North-West seat on its UK Consultative Forum (UKCF).
There are four candidates for one seat, so your votes are important.
UNITE had invited members who were interested in standing to seek union support, and two did so. Members then voted to select which of the two would be the union-backed candidate. Rob (Wilf) Williams was selected by union members, so the other member who had expressed an interest graciously withdrew.
Within the next week you should receive an email from Electoral Reform Services which includes the details of how to vote. Please vote for Wilf as soon as you receive the email, so that it doesn’t get buried in your inbox. Please encourage your workmates to do the same.
For more information about the UKCF, see the information UNITE produced for the previous elections: www.ourunion.org.uk/ukcf.htm
