Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2016 – COTA

I refer to my previous correspondence dated 29th June 2017 where I requested that you inform us of any changes to your details and that your ballot papers would be sent out very shortly. Matters have arisen which has delayed the sending out of ballot papers but this issue has been resolved and I am pleased to inform you that your ballot papers will be dispatched on Tuesday 1st August 2017.

I cannot stress how important it is that you use your vote in this ballot. Due to the new draconian anti-trade union laws, thresholds have to be met before the ballot can be validated. In a nutshell, we have to have more than a 50% turnout and more than 40% of the turnout voting ‘YES’ for strike action and action short of a strike. Without meeting these thresholds, the ballot will be declared invalid.

Additionally, if there have been any changes to your job, your workplace location or your home address and contact details, please get in touch with us by contacting the national helpline on 0800 376 3706 or you can email info@rmt.org.uk

SUPPORT YOUR UNION
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE


Yours sincerely
 

Mick Cash
General Secretary
