UNISON GenSec Election: Need a replacement ballot?

The UNISON General Secretary election is underway and if you still haven’t received your ballot paper, or if you need a replacement, there is still time to contact the ballot helpline on 0800 0 857 857.

Please note that the ballot helpline closes at 12 noon on Friday 20th November so do not delay if you need a replacement ballot as you now have less than 24 hours remaining.

This is an incredibly important election for UNISON and we have the opportunity to make a once in a generation change to our union.

Your vote counts.
