This is your chance to have a say in who leads the union and who represents all our members.  The election only comes around every five years so use your vote and make sure your voice is heard.

Dave Prentis, our current general secretary, retires at the end of the year after 20 years leading the UK’s biggest union. You have the chance to decide who leads our union for the next five years.

If you were a member, or retired member, of UNISON on 28 July 2020, you will be entitled to a vote.

The general secretary represents you and the other 1.3 million members of UNISON in meetings with politicians across the UK, in discussions with employers and when working with other trade unions. They speak up for you and are the public face of your union, in the press, on TV and on social media, so it’s important that you use your vote and have your say.

You voting pack will be posted to your home address shortly. You can check your details are up to date on MyUNISON. If you have not received your pack by 10 November, please call our ballot helpline free on 0800 0 857 857 or on textphone 0800 0 967 968. The helpline opens on 10 November and closes on 20 November.#

Make sure you post your completed ballot in plenty of time to CES by 5pm on November 27. It will be freepost, so don’t worry about a stamp.
