Important advice for staff ahead of Kilwinning by-election

Colleagues are reminded that we are now in a pre-election period which means that as Council employees, we need to take additional care to ensure that we continue to act in a completely impartial and non-political manner.

Following the death of Councillor John Glover, a by-election will be held in Ward 6, Kilwinning, on Thursday, May 9. The count will take place the following day from 9am, with a new councillor being elected that day.

The pre-election period continues until close of polls at 10pm on May 9.

Whilst Council business goes ahead as usual, we should not engage in activities which could impact on the outcome of the by-election. Care therefore needs to be taken if organising events or taking forward policies or decisions which could be controversial and impact on the outcome of the election.

The Council’s guidance document provides more detailed advice on how we should approach business during this politically-sensitive period and colleagues are encouraged to read it.
