DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE
VOTE YES FOR STRIKE ACTION & ACTION SHORT OF STRIKE
RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER BY TUESDAY 18TH MAY 2021
Members should now have received their ballot paper. If you have not done so yet please make sure you return it, to reach the Scrutineer by the closing date of TUESDAY 18TH MAY 2021
RMT needs you all to return a magnificent ‘YES’ vote in the pay ballot. 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 the company to win and use draconian anti-trade union laws to end the pay dispute.
Important Please Note: The independent scrutineer for RMT Ballots and Elections is now 'Civica Election Services' and not the 'Electoral Reform Society'. Letters from Civica are not Junk Mail and should be opened.
If you do not receive your voting paper from the independent scrutineer or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call the helpline on 0800 376 3706, RMT Head Office on 0207 387 4771 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request a replacement.
