Queries on UNITE/Amicus Executive elections

Quite a few workplace reps and stewards have been asking about the process for nominations to the Amicus seats on the UNITE Executive Council.

My previous posts on the subject explain a lot of it, but I've heard responses to two specific questions that I thought might be of general interest:

  • Nominations from workplaces (as opposed to branches) must come from workplace representatives (which includes shop stewards), not Health & Safety Reps or Union Learning Reps.
  • The nomination forms include space for lots of details, including home address, but your nomination will be valid as long as the person you are nominating is clearly identified. If you have a name, branch and membership number that should be fine.
