NUJ members have been given an extra ten days to vote for a new editor for the union's magazine- the Journalist because of the strike by postal workers. The ballot will now close on 16 November.
The eight candidates for the job have been sent an email which reads:
"Following advice received this morning from Electoral Reform Services, the deadline for receipt of ballot papers for editor of the Journalist election will now be extended to Monday 16 November.
"Ballots received up to and including 1st post on Monday 16th November will be included in the count. The count will now take place at 1.30pm on Monday 16 November.
"The report of the election will be made available to the National Executive Council on Wednesday 18 November."
