Our local association of the union has a committee which is responsible the day-to-day business of the union. We elect members to the committee annually (apart from 5 positions which are subsequently appointed).

Members may stand for any of the following officer positions of the local association committee:

Honorary secretary
Equality secretary
Campaigns secretary
Health and safety secretary
Recruitment and membership secretary

Or members may stand to be one of the 14 ordinary elected members of the committee.

Nominations for all committee positions must be received by the branch administrator in writing no less than 24 hours before the AGM (therefore, by 3.45pm on Tuesday 23 May).You may wish to use the attached nomination form, but you don’t need to. Nominations must be accompanied by the written consent of the nominee and supported by the identifiable signatures of two members of the local association.

If there have been insufficient nominations to fill all committee places before the meeting further nominations to fill remaining vacancies may be proposed from the floor of the Annual General Meeting. Nominations for Officers and Committee for the ensuing year may be made by any members of the Local Association.

Please scan and email nominations to the branch administrator Alan Smith, post them to UCU office, 7.51 EC Stoner Building.

The current committee is keen to encourage more women members and black / BME members to seek nomination so that next year’s committee fully reflects the gender and ethnicity balance of the membership.
