How to stand for election as a Rep

Case study - TVP Rep Insp John McDonald

The triennial elections for all Reps in TVP will take place in 2018. This year will involve new processes as the national Fed changes.

Nomination window due to open in February 2018

We will update the nomination proocess on this page once it has been finalised nationally but it will be done electronically. Indivividual officers will be able to self nominate to stand in one of 3 county constituencies -  Oxford, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. This will be determined by where your posted normal place of duty is. Officers seconded or based outside of the Force area will be eligible to stand in the Berkshire constituency.

Roadshows - a number of events in each of the 3 counties will be held later this month to allow officers to meet with Reps and find out about the opportunities and skills that can be attained whilst being a TVP Fed Rep including a level 4 Skills For Justice Award in representation.

Road Shows dates:

What will the new process be like?

 

Please read the Guide to Triennial Elections.

The new process will provide a new rank-less structure, there will be no more separate rank committees at local or national level. The number of officials on the National Board will be reduced from 30 to 24. The National Board along with the National Council (which is made up of local Federation Chairs and Secretaries and other individuals from protected characteristics groups ) will be the key decision making bodies for the organisation. The new process allows members to vote for local chairs as well as the national chair via a new electronic voting system which will be facilitated by the members' database. The new structure will mean that TVP Fed has a total of 28 Reps looking after around 4,000 officers.

The current triennial period was been extended by the Home Office until the new Regulations came into Force on 31st Dec 17 and the new voting process can take effect. In the meantime, if you are thinking of standing to be a Federation representative and would like to know more about what the role entails, please look at the Fed Rep Role Description or contact the Thame office, HERE

Please be advised, the delay in the election process will not affect the service provided to members who will continue to be served by their current reps until the new ones are elected.
