Election rules.

View our rules

(1)
It is fine to encourage members to stand for positions in the TEU either on committees, council or as national officers; however, staff may not take any role in their election campaign.

(2)
It is fine to tell members what the roles entail in terms of what the rules say, time commitments likely to be involved etc.

(3)
Staff must not give endorsements to any candidates either formal or informal, or the perception of endorsements.

(4)
Even if members ask you for your opinion about the qualities of particular candidates for the role you must not engage in conversations of this kind.

(5)
At public events and member meetings staff need to be aware of perceptions we give when introducing or thanking candidates – either in their role as candidates or as existing TEU spokespeople. Staff also need to be aware of giving all candidates similar opportunities to speak to members.

(6)
Communications to members – we need to be aware in emails and written communications of how we portray candidates, noting that their formal TEU role may interact with their informal candidate role.

(7)
We need to balance the need to actively promote and support TEU spokespeople with the need for balance and fairness between candidates.

(8)
Use of resources – these need to be allocated fairly. That means that no candidate or candidates has more access to TEU resources or material support than other candidates. This includes access to email lists, conference call facilities, printing, photocopying etc. The returning officer will be responsible for the allocation of resources.
