From 6th January 2016 until 20th January 2016 at 12 noon, the GMB carried out an online consultative ballot.

The question on the ballot asked if you agree with the joint trade unions position that there should be one set of negotiation’s covering contracting out, the NAPS/ APS valuation and improvements to BARP pension schemes.

The results of the ballot are as follows:

  • YES 99%
  • NO 1%

Therefore the overwhelming view of GMB members that voted was to support the trade unions arguments and have one set of pension negotiations. We will now communicate this result to the company and to our sister trade unions.

The result includes all BA GMB Branches.
