Message from the Hon. Secretary
Dear Member ,
I write with regard to the Annual General Meeting of our union scheduled for the Sunday, the 27th of February 2022.
The AGM will commence at 15:00 Hrs in :
The Conference Room , London Post Office Sports & Social Club
136 Greenford Road, Sudbury Hill , Harrow HA1 3QL Phone: 020 8423 8014
The election of office bearers is a core activity at the AGM. In this matter , the procedures accepted , unanimously, by the committee meeting held on the 10th of October 2021 (Agenda item 2 of that meeting ) will be adhered to . The essence of this unanimous decision was that election to all posts will be by confidential ballot whenever there obtains any competition at all for any of the posts . The nomination paper attached hereto is in accordance with that unanimous decision.
There has been , in the past, so much misunderstanding of the process. Please observe the following in the process of submitting nominations :
- The completed nomination forms are to be sent to the secretary by and only by those who seek to serve in a particular post . Accordingly, the secretary should and will receive only as many nominations as there are aspiring candidates .
- THE ASPIRING CANDIDATE ALONE SHOULD INITIATE THE SUBMISSION OF THE NOMINATION FOR A PARTICULAR POST AND STATE THE NAMES OF THOSE MEMBERS (*) WHO HAVE CONSENTED TO BE THE PROPOSER AND SECONDER FOR THE CANDIDATE .
PROPOSERS AND SECONDERS ARE NOT TO SUBMIT ANY FORMS AT ALL
(*) The proposer and the seconder stated must be invitees to the AGM 2022 – it is the responsibility of the candidate who submits a form to the secretary to ensure that this consideration is applicable to the proposer and the seconder .
Where needed , all ballot papers will be prepared in accordance with the decisions of the committee meeting held on the 10th of October 2021.
Please ensure that all applications are sent to reach me by the Sunday the 06th of February at the very latest .
Very shortly, I will write to all members with regard to several other matters relating to the AGM .
With the best wishes ,
Acting in the capacity of secretary (pro tempore)
