Branch Elections Nominations open Monday 13 January

 
Each year, we elect our UNISON stewards and Branch Officers, and the election period opens on Monday. As well as encouraging those of you who have already been a steward or officer over the last year to stand again, this is a really good opportunity for anyone else to get involved/stand in the elections. A separate email with details of how to do this and nomination forms will go out this week, so please keep an eye out for it and seriously consider getting more active in your union branch.
