With less than 3 weeks left to post your vote in the PCS pay ballot your union needs you to help urge members to use their vote and pass the 50% legal turnout threshold.
This is a crucial phase of the ballot so whatever time you can spare to help get the vote out could be critical in helping your branch and your union as a whole achieve a 50% turnout. There are a number of things you can do, we are focusing on the following:
- Phoning other PCS members about the pay campaign
- Using your branch app to talk to your colleagues at work and tick off who has voted
- Handing out leaflets at your workplace and talking to members face to face
- Recruiting a colleague to be a PCS member
- Arranging pay campaign events in your area.
Every call counts
If you can join in with phone banking you can make calls from anywhere you like, at no cost to you, using the CallHub software – sign up online, read the step-by-step guide and get calling. All you need to get involved with the PCS phone bank is a phone (mobile or landline), a computer and access to wifi.
Our volunteers have had a very positive response from members they have called so far and they have also said how easy they find the software to use.
If you’d prefer to make your calls in a group join a phone bank session at a PCS regional office. Contact your nearest office to check opening times and to say you would like to volunteer.
So read the guide, sign up and get calling and let’s get turnout well above 50%. Whatever you do for your union could make all the difference in the ballot.
