NOMINATION INFORMATION FOR

IN-SERVICE MEMBERS

WHAT IS THE CANDIDATE NOMINATION PHASE?

The Candidate Nomination Phase is an opportunity for eligible in-service members of the Fund (permanent employees of the EPPF, Eskom and its subsidiaries) to nominate other eligible members to stand as candidates for election as Board members.

 

HOW DOES THE IN-SERVICE MEMBER TRUSTEE NOMINATION PROCESS WORK?

In-service members of the Fund are classified into two categories for the purposes of the trustee elections - (1) Bargaining Unit members and (2) Non-Bargaining Unit members. Each category follows its own candidate nomination process as outlined below:

An Overview of the Nomination Process for Bargaining Unit Members

Each of the three trade unions (NUM, NUMSA and Solidarity) representing bargaining unit employees is entitled to elect one Board Member. For candidate nomination, each trade union is required to submit three (3) candidates, who must be nominated by Fund members through their union structures.

The process of deciding on the three names from each union will be conducted through each union's internal nomination processes.

 

Bargaining unit members must, therefore, contact their shop stewards/union representatives to find out about the nomination process.

 

On completion of the nomination process, each trade union will submit the three names before the nomination closing date on 7 October 2019. After undergoing fitness and propriety background checks, the three names will be included on the ballot paper for voting by Bargaining Unit members.

 

Please note that:

  • Non-Bargaining Unit members are NOT eligible to stand as candidates in the Bargaining Unit trustee category; and

  • Bargaining Unit candidates do not necessarily have to be members of the Fund.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY CANDIDATE NOMINATION?

Bargaining Unit members will nominate through the processes determined by the internal union structures (NUM, NUMSA and Solidarity).

 

Please contact your shop steward/union representative to find out about the nomination process.

An Overview of the Nomination Process for Non-Bargaining Unit Members

 

Fund members currently in-service (not retired) who are not part of the bargaining unit are entitled to nominate up to two eligible Non-Bargaining Unit members of their choice.

After undergoing fitness and propriety background checks, the top six candidates who receive the most number of nominations will be confirmed as candidates, and placed on the ballot paper for voting by Non-Bargaining Unit members.

Please note that:

  • Bargaining Unit members are NOT eligible to stand as candidates in the Non-Bargaining Unit category; and

  • Non-Bargaining Unit candidates must be in-service members of the Fund.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY CANDIDATE NOMINATION?

Nominations for the Non-Bargaining Unit members must be submitted using the official Candidate Nomination Form that is accessible by clicking the button below. Detailed instructions on how to complete the nomination form are contained on the form itself.
