A NEW BALLOT & INDUSTRIAL ACTION
Referring to my previous correspondence dated 24th October 2018, I reiterate that due to the balloting regulations in the 2016 Trade Union Act, the RMT has to conduct another ballot to get a fresh mandate from you and your colleagues in this dispute.
To continue your fight for a decent pay rise, you must take part in this new ballot and it is vital that everyone who is entitled to a ballot paper uses their vote for strike action and action short of a strike so that the thresholds are met and the dispute can carry on.
Therefore, on Wednesday 31st October 2018 the independent scrutineer will send a ballot paper to your home address and the ballot will close on Tuesday 13th November 2018.
Additionally, I would like to remind you that your National Executive Committee (NEC) has instructed you to take industrial action by not booking on for any shifts that commence between:-
• 00:01 hours and 23:59 hours on Friday 9th November 2018
• 00:01 hours and 23:59 hours on Monday 12th November 2018
• Also, with effect from 00:01 hours on Saturday 10th November 2018 until 23:59 hours on Sunday 11th November 2018 members are instructed not to work any overtime.
