I write with regards to the above matter and to inform you that the referendum has closed and the result is as follows:
Number of eligible Votes: 217
Number of Votes cast: 182 84% (turnout)
Voting Yes to accept: 83 45.6% (of those who voted)
Voting No to reject: 99 54.4% (of those who voted)
The union’s National Executive Committee has considered the matter and note that our members have rejected the proposals. Therefore, I have been instructed to inform Merseyrail of the result.
I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I will, of course, update you on any further developments.
