Information on MU GS Election Nomination Meetings

MU Democracy Needs You!

It is important for any MU members seeking change to attend their online Regional Nomination Meetings in order to select candidates for the upcoming MU General Secretary election.

Due to Covid, in-person Regional Nomination Meetings have now been cancelled and moved online.

It is vital that members attend in order to vote for their preferred candidate. Only candidates nominated in at least one region will be able to go forward to the final national General Secretary election ballot.

Register For Online Regional Meeting

Members will need to register beforehand to attend their online regional meeting.

You can register for your meeting here: https://musiciansunion.typeform.com/GSElection-RNM

Registration takes one minute.

NB Registration for each Regional Nomination Meeting will close 48 hours before the meeting itself is due to take place (see meeting dates and times below).

Any members submitting registrations after this deadline will not be able to attend the meeting.

How It Works

The MU’s membership is divided into 6 regions and each regional meeting will vote for their preferred candidate from the nominated candidates they have for that region. 

Those elected candidates’ names will then go forward into the national election for the next General Secretary for the Musicians Union which will take place in the next few months.
