UNISON is asking its members to vote YES in the ballot for industrial action to protect public sector pensions.
Current proposals mean that most people will pay more and work longer to get a pension that will be worth less.
UNISON has tried to negotiate in good faith for secure and affordable pensions – but ministers won’t listen.
We are balloting for strike action initially to start on 30 November. We are also working with other trade unions and community groups to organise local and national protests in support of public sector pensions.
We need a big YES vote and a high turnout to send a clear and united message to ministers that “enough is enough”, that will help persuade them to withdraw their current unfair and unjustified attacks on pensions.
The ballot opened on 11 October and closes on 3 November.
When you receive your ballot paper be sure to fill it in and return it as soon as you get it.
Please spread the word so that your colleagues in UNISON vote YES in the ballot.
Please vote YES to protect your pension.
