Remember to vote

15 Jul 2018

Our statutory ballot for industrial action over pay closes on 23 July. Remember to post your ballot paper before then.

It is very important that all members vote in this ballot, because of the trade union laws which mean we must have a 50% turnout.

Voting can only be done by post so it’s very important that you complete your ballot paper and get it back to the independent scrutineers before Monday, 23 July. You can find out where your nearest post box is on the local post box website.

When you’ve voted and posted, remember to let us know by completing the short web form.

Haven’t got a ballot paper?

If you haven’t had a ballot paper, or have lost it, please contact with your name and either your membership or national insurance number and your ballot address, including postcode by noon on 16 July. We need your ballot address so we can check the details we hold on our membership database and update them as required before issuing a replacement ballot paper.

Crucial outcome

Please don’t leave it until the last minute to vote as it only takes a second to put an X in the box, but the outcome of this ballot is crucial.

We need to send a very strong message to the government that it needs to negotiate with us and cannot continue to treat civil servants as inferior to the rest of the public sector.

The way to get the government to take us seriously is to turn out and vote in large numbers in this ballot.

Remember, the national executive committee has committed to consult all members again before any industrial action is called, but it is important that the government knows that we are prepared to take action if necessary.
