HAVE YOU VOTED? – DON’T WASTE YOUR VOTE, MAKE SURE YOU RETURN IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR PAPER VOTE ‘YES’ TO BOTH QUESTIONS!

Dear Colleague,

SUSPENSION OF RMT REPRESENTATIVES, FRATTON – SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY

Voting papers should now have arrived in the ballot where we are asking you to defend our representatives who have wrongly been suspended by SWR.

As I am sure you are all too aware, it is vital that we achieve the highest possible turnout and the highest possible vote saying ‘YES’ for action, as the government's very stringent anti-union laws means that every vote counts.

Therefore, if you have not yet returned your voting paper, then please do so as a matter of urgency as the ballot closes on Thursday 4th June 2020. If you have not yet received your voting paper by, then please contact the RMT Helpline by Email at info@rmt.org.uk. Alternatively, you can call the RMT Freephone Helpline number on 0800 376 3706, the RMT switchboard on 0207 387 4771 and ask to speak to the Industrial Relations Department where they will arrange for a replacement ballot paper to be sent. If you are aware of a colleague who has not received their paper or has recently moved address or changed their workplace/job title then ask them to contact their union on one of the above contact methods.

Your union and, more importantly, your colleagues need you to return a huge ‘YES’ vote to defend our representatives and ensure SWR does not win.

Important Please Note:  The 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.
 
DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE
RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER!
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR PAPER VOTE 'YES' TO BOTH QUESTIONS!

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
