May we thank all those GMB members who participated in the recent consultative ballot on pensions.
The results of the ballot are:
Q1- Do you agree with some for of Industrial Action on pensions?
Q2 – Do you agree with the company imposition on pensions?
The result is overwhelming to reject the company imposition of its proposals. The result is overwhelming that allows the GMB to conduct a full legal ballot for industrial action if it is felt we need to do so.
GMB and Unite (who already have a similar mandate) have written to the company asking for a further meeting to persuade them not to undertake this course of action.
The joint unions will keep members informed and updated.
May I thank all GMB activists for their assistance in getting the vote out to GMB members.
