Dear Jerry,

Election of Unite – Amicus Section Joint General Secretary

(for a term of office commencing on

23rd December 2009 and concluding on 23rd December 2010).

 

Today is the deadline for submission of nominations. I can inform you that you have received the necessary branch or chapel and/or workplace representative nominations required in order to be a candidate for the election of Unite – Amicus Section Joint General Secretary.

The list of valid nominations received by candidates will be published on the unions’s website as soon as practicable (please note that there are a small number of nominations where issues are subject to further clarification)

In order to be a candidate you must complete and sign the enclosed acceptance form and return it to me. It needs to be received by me no later than 4 p.m. on Friday 23rd January 2009. If you wish the Union to circulate an election address on your behalf with the voting papers this should be attached to the completed acceptance form. You should also e-mail your election address to me at john.gibbins@unitetheunion.com

Rule 28 (10) provides that the election address shall consist of not more than 500 words. In counting the number of words used, I will apply the following principles:

  • Acronyms e.g. “TUC” will count as one word.
  • Numerals e,g. “500,000” will count as one word.
  • Subject to the above, each word in a proper name will count as a separate word. This “John Smith” will count as two words and “The Labour Party” will count as three words.
  • Punctuation (including bullet points) will not be counted but numbering e.g. “1” or “(1)” will count as one word.

If the election address you submit exceeds 500 words, the words after the 500th will not be printed.

Logos, photographs and illustrations will not be allowed.

If you have any other questions relating to the word count or how the election address will be presented, please contact me in advance of the deadline for submitting your election address and I will endeavour to clarify the position.

Please remember that your completed acceptance form and election address must be received by me no later than 4 p.m. on Friday 23rd January 2009.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

John Gibbins

Returning Officer
