  • number of staff representatives and deputies to be elected
  • where employees will be able to find out the names of the candidates
  • conditions for the passive electorate

A template election notice is available in the employers’ area of the website MyGuichet.lu, accessible with the login details provided by the ITM.

  • Deadline for requesting ministerial authorisation for postal voting

For employees due to be absent on the day of the ballot for reasons inherent in the way work is organised within the company (for example a business trip or overseas project) or due to illness, a work accident, maternity leave or other leave, a request for postal voting can be submitted to the Minister of Labour.

The request for authorisation for postal voting must be submitted by the head of the company or by the staff delegation to the Ministry of Labour no later than 11 February 2019. The Minister of Labour will give its decision in the form of a decree specifying the terms and conditions for postal voting.
