Under its constitution, five representatives need to be selected to replace those who are due to retire from office on 30 November 2013. In addition a further vacancy has arisen in Section Two.
Representatives due to retire are Linda Arwood and David Porter from Section One (representing pensioners and deferred pensioners), Ralph Pidsley from Section Two (representing employees of TfL, its subsidiaries or contractors) with Mark Harding and Linda Martin from Section Three (representing employees of London Underground, its subsidiaries or contractors).
Successful nominees in Section One should also note that attendance to the four Pensioners' Forum meetings is a requirement of election.
Any TfL Pension Fund member may nominate another member as a candidate for election or re-election to the section that represents them both. Retiring representatives can also be nominated.
Nominations must be made in writing by a member of the same section as the nominee. Each nomination must be countersigned by another Fund member represented by the same section. The information listed below and a personal statement of up to 100 words, including the reason for standing for election or re-election to the PCC, must accompany the nomination.
A passport-sized photograph may also be provided for inclusion in voting papers.
Please note that the information provided must be factual, appropriate and inoffensive.
Completed nominations must be sent to the PCC Secretary Julian Collins, TfL Pension Fund, 4th floor, Wing over Station, 55 Broadway, London, SW1H 0BD by Friday 16 August 2013. Copies of the PCC constitution are also available from the same address.
If there are more nominations than vacancies, elections will be held by postal ballot among Fund members in the relevant sections.
