5. Election of Reps
The original email included the text of a proposed motion on the pay freeze.
If you wish to propose any amendments, please let your reps know in advance of the meeting if possible, so that the meeting can be well organised.
Reps nominations
At the AGM, members will elect Reps for the coming year. Below is a list of the nominations received so far. To save paper, the election statements will not be printed in the pack distributed at the meeting itself.
