Why am I being balloted?
At this stage, your union, Unite is consulting you on whether you and your colleagues would be prepared to take strike action over UCEA’s wholly inadequate pay rise of just 3%. This is a consultative ballot. A legal industrial action ballot will follow, shortly after, if a majority votes for action.
Your Unite reps are disappointed that it’s come to this, but despite some intense negotiating sessions, UCEA (the employer’s association) has come back and said it would not be improving its ‘final’ pay offer. Yet, it’s acknowledged that the cost of living crisis is worsening for staff. It seems unusually cruel to admit on the one hand that things are bad, but then do nothing to mitigate it.
It’s time to get vote ready – make sure you can vote by checking that your Unite membership details are up-to-date. Go to UNITE’s webpage or scan the QR code.
