Local Government Pay Ballot

Your Pay, Your Future

Following my last bulletin 10 May 2013 in which I set out the pay offer from Local Government employers to all staff covered by NJC terms and conditions including councils, schools and academies throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland, I can now confirm the details for the ballot.

GMB is pleased to be the only union to be giving all members a free personal vote.  A ballot paper will be sent to your home address on or around 20 June with a freepost envelope for your reply.  The closing date for the ballot is 3 July.  The ballot will be carried out by the independent Electoral Reform Services and your vote will be entirely secret.  I really hope that all members take advantage of their right to vote.

If you know of anyone who isn’t a GMB member please ask them to join so that they can have their say.  After all, it’s their pay rise too.  And the more members we have, the stronger the case we can make for everyone.  Potential new members can join through our website.

Thank you for supporting GMB and remember to use your vote.
