REMINDER- VOTE YES NOW

Please see below a message from the UAL UCU Campaign Committee. Remember, TODAY is the last time you can vote. Please get your paper in the post today as the ballot will close at 12pm tomorrow.

Dear colleagues,

This is an urgent reminder to VOTE YES to support your union at UAL.

We need all members to use their voices to send a clear message to our management that it must negotiate properly with us.

We have endured this damaging, destructive and mishandled ‘efficiency programme’ for too long.

We want to stop the compulsory redundancies and win a proper review of the programme’s impact. We want a properly negotiated redundancy agreement. We want to defend the quality of the arts education we deliver. And we want to build a culture in which management properly consults with and involves staff and in which it strives for agreement with trade unions. But management are not listening.

If we are to make any progress, we need you to speak out now.

That’s why we’re asking you to VOTE YES to BOTH strike action and action short of a strike. This will give us all the options we need and send a clear message to management. 

Time is now very short. the ballot closes on Tuesday at 12pm, so we urge you to get your ballot paper in the post TODAY.  

VOTE YES TO ACTION AND YES TO ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE
