NEC elections

Dear UoL UCU members,

The University of Liverpool branch committee voted yesterday to support the NEC election campaigns of our Branch President Jo McNeill and our branch Vice President Eleni Michalopoulou. The branch committee also voted to support the election campaigns of Northwest Regional Secretary Pura Ariza and the Northwest Regional Chair Chris Sheehy who are also standing in these elections.

The branch officers and committee recommend that you vote accordingly:

Geographically-elected members of the National Executive Committee – North West HE (2 seats)
– Jo McNeill 1

– Chris Sheehy 2

Representatives of LGBT members
– Pura Ariza 1

UK Elected Members HE
– Eleni Michalopoulou 1

As a branch we work closely with all four UCU reps and we believe they are strong negotiators who have an excellent reputation as dedicated, hard working reps within their branches and in the Northwest Region. We would like to see these candidates elected to our National Executive as we feel they would effectively represent our members views at a national level.

If you are unhappy with the decisions UCU made recently at a national level then please use your vote.

Please remember, this is a branch committee recommendation only and we do advise you to read the election addresses of all delegates before voting.

Best wishes,

UCU branch committee
University of Liverpool
