DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE: VOTE 'YES' FOR STRIKE ACTION AND 'YES' FOR ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

Our Ref B/4/1

 

20th April 2021

 

TO ALL BUS DRIVERS AT BLUESTAR

 

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE:

VOTE 'YES' FOR STRIKE ACTION AND 'YES' FOR ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

DISMISSAL, DECLAN CLUNE - BLUESTAR

 

You should now have received your ballot paper for industrial action. If you have not done so already, please make sure you return your paper, to reach the Scrutineer by the closing date of Tuesday 27th April 2021.        

 

I urge you not to waste your vote and to vote ‘YES’ for both industrial action short of a strike and ‘YES’ for strike action so we can continue the fight for justice. If the statutory thresholds are not met, then no industrial action can happen - even if members vote overwhelmingly 'YES' for strike action and industrial action short of a strike. Therefore, IF YOU DON'T VOTE - IT COUNTS AS A 'NO' VOTE. We cannot allow Bluestar to get away with sacking a trade union representative for reporting safety concerns and for them to use the draconian anti-trade union laws to end the dispute. 

 

If you have not received your voting paper from the independent scrutineer, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please e-mail info@rmt.org.uk to request a replacement. Alternatively, call the freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706.

 

Important Please Note:  The Scrutineer for RMT Ballots and Elections is now 'Civica Election Services' (CES) and not the 'Electoral Reform Society'. Letters from Civica are not Junk Mail and should be opened.

 

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE:

VOTE 'YES' FOR STRIKE ACTION AND 'YES' FOR ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mick Cash

General Secretary
