You can find full details, with instructions and the pre-built forms you need for each step here: – PLEASE do NOT use any other forms, make your own, etc. We need to try and keep as much consistency as we can.

Once again, these elections are to take place at the station level, organized by the Shop Steward and reporting back to your Regional Recording Secretary.
