We would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to return our ballot papers and as we have reported the results to the employer, its now time to let you all know how the results went.
We had 77% of our posted ballot papers returned, which is a good return for a postal ballot. 92% of people who responded voted to REJECT the proposal as laid out by SLT management. 82% of votes returned gave us the mandate to progress to an formal industrial action ballot.
We have reported the results to the employer and we have stated to them that if they do not revise or change their proposal then we will commence a formal ballot for industrial action, in line with the clear mandate you have given us.
We will be in touch again when we have any more information for you.
Please note if you did not receive a ballot paper, please contact our branch office at firstname.lastname@example.org with your current address as we may not have an up to date address for you. It is important that we have your updated address if we have to run an industrial action ballot.
