UNITE NEC elections - nominations closed

I have received a letter from Derek Simpson, the Returning Officer, saying that when nominations closed last Friday, I was the only person to receive sufficient nominations for the Electrical Engineering, Electronics & IT (EEE&IT) seat. He will recommend to the Amicus Section NEC on 6th February that I am declared elected unopposed.

Rumours suggest that I am not the only candidate in this position.

A big thank you to everyone who supported my campaign. But please don't forget that the Executive Council will be 80-strong, so it's important that good candidates are elected to as many seats as possible if we are to make UNITE as strong as members need it to be. Members in the EEE&IT sector are still likely to get a vote for a regional seat and four women's seats. The campaign goes on.

Watch for updates.

If you're interested, this is the leaflet I had prepared for the election campaign.
