Tell us you've posted

It’s important that we know how many members are voting as we attempt to smash the 50% legal threshold for strike action.

Our national strike ballot opened on 18 March and ballot papers have been posted out to all members involved. We are balloting members working for 171 civil service departments and related areas.

The law on industrial action requires a minimum of 50% of members to vote to make the strike action legal. It also has to be a postal vote. It is therefore vital that we can keep track of how many members are voting to ensure that we achieve the required turnout. We can then work on reminding members who haven’t voted.

When you have filled in your ballot paper and posted it please tell us that you have voted.

You can do it in several ways:

  • Log in to your PCS Digital account, go to My Record and tick the box
  • Use the unique link sent to you by email last week.
  • Tell your PCS rep at work that you have posted back your ballot paper and they will tick you off the list
  • Respond to the text message you will receive from one of our PCS volunteers
  • If you are not registered for PCS Digital we would encourage you to do so.  However you can use our online form instead.

Remember that telling us you have voted does not count as a vote. Only completed ballot papers returned to us in the post count towards the ballot total.

Please also remind your friends and colleagues to post back their ballot papers. Any members who don’t vote undermine the chances of us being able to do anything about the government’s unfair pay policies.
