Further to Head Office Circular NP/172/18, 5th September 2018 I am writing to advise you of the outcome of the ballot called for by the National Executive Committee.
Our members are to be congratulated for the solid yes vote for strike action and action short of a strike. Of those members entitled to vote in the ballot 86.7% of members returned ballot papers with an overwhelming 92.3% voting in favour of action.
The National Executive Committee have considered the result and have called for industrial action with ISS members at Edinburgh instructed not to book on for duty between 00:01 and 23:59 on Sunday 18th November. Individual members have been notified of the result and action.
Please make the contents of this circular available to all appropriate members.
