There’s no bigger role in the union than that of general secretary.

It’s one of the most high-profile jobs in the country – leader of the largest public service trade union in the UK and the leading voice of more than 1.3 million public service workers.

All UNISON members, including retired members, who were in membership on 9 August 2015, have the right to vote in this important election.

The ballot closes at 5pm on 4 December.
