Re: Nominations for the Position of Shop Steward, Deputy Shop Steward, Health & Safety Rep and House Committee Members
I hope you are all keeping well.
Mandate have been informed by Ms. Hannah Clark of her intention to step down from the position of interim Shop Steward for your store. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of Mandate and I am sure the wider membership in Penney’s Swords to thank Hannah for all the hard work, dedication and commitment that she has brought to the role of Shop Steward.
Given the fact that Hannah is stepping down I have decided to take this opportunity to reconstitute the Mandate Structures in your store. Therefore I am seeking nominations for the positions of Shop Steward, Deputy Shop Steward, Health & Safety Representative and House Committee Membership (X 4 Positions). If a member currently holds one of the above positions and wishes to remain in that position then they should enter their details in the fields below.
In order to assist interested members I have provided links below outlining the roles in more detail:
