Vote for Unison General Secretary

We are encouraging all UNISON members to take part in the very important election for our union’s general secretary, the most senior position in Britain’s largest public service union. This election comes at a time when public services and the workers who provide them are under unprecedented and sustained attack.

In such circumstances, who leads UNISON is a vital question giving members all the more reason to use their votes.

Ballot papers should start to arrive at members’ home addresses from Tuesday of this week (10 November). Everyone in membership by early August should be eligible to vote. If you have not received a ballot paper by Monday 16 November, please contact UNISONdirect on 0800 0857 857 rather than the branch office. The ballot closes on Friday 04 December with the result due to be announced on Thursday 17 December.

There are four candidates on this year’s ballot paper (Roger Bannister, John Burgess, Dave Prentis and Heather Wakefield).

Your Birmingham branch committee has nominated John Burgess, the secretary of the Barnet branch.

In contrast to previous elections, branches which have made a valid nomination are also entitled to say why – in up to 100 words – they have supported a candidate, so please see below:

"Our members have seen relentless cuts across our public services, massive job losses, and pay cuts for the last five years with the threat of five more years of the same.

UNISON's national leadership has failed to effectively oppose this onslaught. We need new leadership to stand up for our members and not tamely accept these attacks.

As a Branch Secretary, John Burgess knows how tough it is on the front line and is not removed from our members problems.

He will lead from the front, not just in words and that’s why our Branch is supporting him"
