UCU national executive committee casual vacancy: ballot opens

The ballot to elect a UK-elected NEC member from the further education sector opens on 1 September 2021 and closes at noon on 29 September.  The nomination calling notice (UCU/1092) and details of nominations received for all casual vacancies (UCU1097) can be found below.  Attention is also drawn to the election guidance notes.  All UCU members in the further education sector (other than student members) are entitled to vote in this election.

Ballot information

Ballot material will be dispatched on Wednesday 1 September. We know that this can take a few days to arrive. If any member has not received the ballot material to which they are entitled by Wednesday 8 September, they should contact the union to request a duplicate ballot paper using the online form.

The majority of members will be receiving their voting papers at their home addresses, but if you have given your work address as your preferred address for receiving your voting papers, please remember to make sure that you arrange to collect your papers from work.

The scrutineer for these elections is Civica Election Services (formerly Electoral Reform Services Limited), The Election Centre, 33 Clarendon Road, London N8 0NW. Please note that the pre-paid reply envelopes provided for the return of ballot papers will show a different address; this reflects an arrangement Civica Election Services has to deal with the very large volume of post it receives. All ballot papers returned in pre-paid envelopes or to the Civica office address above will reach the scrutineer.

To be sent information in large print or other formats, or for further information about these elections, contact Kay Metcalfe or Catherine Wilkinson.
