PCS annual elections – use your vote

elections 2017

  • NEC elections run from Thursday 20 April to Thursday 11 May
  • GEC elections run from Thursday 27 April to Tuesday 16 May
  • Use your vote – branch recommendations listed below

It’s that time of the year when members get to choose who runs their union. We are urging all members to take part in the elections, and have their say in who sits on the Group Executive Committee (which runs PCS in HMRC) and the National Executive Committee (which runs PCS as a whole).

The Branch Executive Committee would urge all members to consider giving their vote to the candidates who were nominated at our AGM in March. They are listed below, for convenience. Our own branch organiser Phil Dickens is now also standing for Assistant Group Secretary and the BEC would ask you to consider giving your support to him as well.

Group Executive Committee

Lorna Merry (elected unopposed)

Vice President
Hector Wesley (elected unopposed)

Assistant Group Secretaries
Phil Dickens, John Smith, Colette Smith

GEC ordinary members
Laura Bee, Tracy Boyce, Phil Dickens, Mark Emmerson, Alan Runswick, Bobby Young

How to vote

This year, GEC elections will electronically. Members who have provided PCS with a personal email will be notified by the appointed independent scrutineers supervising the elections to this address, which will contain a direct link to the voting site and a two-part security code. Members who have not registered an email address will receive a postal ballot.

Remember to cast your GEC ballot by noon on Tuesday 16 May.

National Executive Committee

Bev Laidlaw

Vice Presidents
Tom Bishell, Phil Dickens, Bryan Carlsen, John Moloney

NEC ordinary members
Tom Bishell, Bryan Carlsen, Ralph Corrigan, Phil Dickens, Chris Hickey, Karen Johnson, Bev Laidlaw, Chris Marks, Charlie McDonald, John Moloney, Oli Rahman, Paulette Romain, Leon Searle, George Thompson, Ray Webb, Gilane Young

How to vote

By law, elections for the NEC have to be run via postal ballot. This means that the ballot pack will be delivered to your home from Thursday 21 April, and you will have to fill in and post off the ballot paper. A freepost envelope is provided for this in the pack.

Remember to send your NEC ballot so that it arrives by noon on Thursday 11 May.

Results are due the day after each ballot closes. We will advise members when we have them.
