Election process

As part of our organisational reform we worked with the Home Office to write new regulations to change the way the organisation is structured and how our elections are run - these new regulations became law on 31 December 2017. The new process provides a new rank-less structure; there are no longer separate rank committees at local or national level. Find out more about the structure of the organisation.

What is the new election process?

  • Members vote for workplace reps (Branch Council)
  • The Branch Council vote for the Branch Board members
  • Members elect the local Branch Chair
  • The Branch Board elects the local Branch Secretary
  • Branch Board Chair and Secretary make up the National Council
  • National Council votes to elect the National Board
  • Members vote to elect the National Chair
  • National Board select the General Secretary
  • National Board vote in remaining Principal Officers
