As we have previously communicated, discussions have been taking place with BT, Openreach and EE on a wide range of issues. At this point, no agreement has been reached and significant issues remain unresolved.
On this basis, it is absolutely critical that the sole focus of every single representative and member remains on returning the biggest possible yes vote in a national industrial action ballot.
It’s taken some time to ensure we meet all the legal requirements for an official industrial action ballot, we are in the final stages of verifying the membership data, which is essential to ensure we do not fall foul of the anti-Trade Union legislation. We will share the details of the final timetable as soon as we can.
We will support you in delivering our key messages with a series of live sessions, home mailings, virtual meetings and various other forms of communications in the coming days and weeks.
For now, we need you to make sure you take the opportunity to speak to all of your colleagues and urge them to vote and vote yes in the forthcoming ballot.
If we stand together, we will win this dispute.
Deputy General Secretary (T&FS)
