The ballot papers will be stored in accordance with the requirements of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 as amended by the Trade Union Reform and Employment Rights Act 1993.

As Scrutineers appointed in accordance with Section 49 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 (as amended), we are satisfied as to each of the matters specified in subsection 52(2) with regard to the election.

The following points should also be noted:

1) The person appointed under section 51A to carry out the storage and counting of ballot papers was Electoral Reform Services Limited.

2) The person appointed under Section 51A to carry out the printing and distribution of the ballot papers was TUInk, 65 Leonard Street, London, EC2A 4QS, and we are satisfied with their performance.

3) A copy of the register of voters (as at the relevant date) was examined in accordance with section 49(3). The examination took place at our own instance and did not reveal any matter that should be brought to the attention of the trade union.

We would draw your attention to 52(4), 52(5) and 52(6). Section 52(4) requires that a copy of this report be published and made available to all members of CWU within a three month period from today. This does not however mean that every member has to be notified individually.

Yours sincerely



Adrian Wilkins

Thanks for the information, but shouldn't the Union be worried about turn out (if thats the right phrase) my quick maths put most at 20% except for the engineering sections. Even general elections get more than that.

Gives me the right hump

That is a very poor turn out. :sad: Why dont more people vote? :shock: It dont take long to fill out a ballot paper and return it :mad .makes me very worried if we have a national ballot and need a big turn out to get the message across to royal mail. :pray
