NEC Elections: branch nominations
The National Executive Council runs UNISON and determines the union it will be. Three branch members are standing in this year’s elections: Dan Sartin, Branch, Abi Holdsworth and Kiera Hilder. The ballot will be open from 4-27 May. Lookout for your ballot paper which will be posted to your home address.
Our branch knows the candidates well. We’ve nominated the following candidates for the 2021 NEC elections following discussion at our branch exec committee held on 17 February for the following reasons:
UNISON is crying out for a new NEC leadership.
The candidates we nominated have the best track record of leadership and fighting for members.
They stand to transform UNISON and our branch backs them for that.
- Make UNISON stronger so we can win for members;
- Redirect union resources to branches, so we can better support you at work;
- Coordinate national action on pay so UNISON mounts a serious pay campaign;
- Put greater resourcing and focus on Covid-19, so we can protect our members;
- Fight against the scourges of racism, homophobia, disability discrimination and sexism.
