It would be great if you would let us know when you’ve voted in the pensions industrial action ballot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the word ‘voted’ in the subject box. (We’re not asking what you voted.)
This will help us to remind colleagues who may have forgotten to vote, so we can deal with the obstacle of the Tory anti-strike law which says unions have to get a 50% turnout but forbids us from using electronic voting or having ballot boxes in the workplace because these would increase the turnout.
(We will try not to ask you again once you’ve either told us you’ve voted or that you don’t want a reminder.)
If you haven’t received your ballot paper by Monday 4 December, you can request a replacement by going to ucu.org.uk/ussballotrequest
