voteAs part of Thatcher’s legacy the union has to hold a ballot regarding its political fund every 10 years. As you may know UNISON’S Political Fund is divided into a General Political Fund for general campaigning and the Affiliated Political Fund that goes to the Labour Party. The ballot papers were sent out with the last issue of U Magazine, which you should have received by now. The ballot closes on 30th November 2014.
