Dave Prentis, our current general secretary, retires at the end of this year after 20 years leading the UK's biggest union. Soon you'll get a chance to decide who leads the union for the next five years.
The general secretary represents you and 1.3 million members of UNISON, so it's important that you use your vote and have your say.

The ballot is being run on our behalf by an independent organisation called Civica Election Services (CES).

Your election pack will include the ballot paper and the pre-paid return envelope. There will also be information about the candidates who are standing to be general secretary.
