Results of the member poll on the Education offer

Posted by Heather Hayes on December 17, 2018

I hope that you have all had a great weekend.

The result of the poll is that we had just over 51% of members casting a vote with 43.49% voting yes and 56.51% voting No, which means the majority of members have voted in favor of not accepting the offer. Delegates have accepted this result and we will advise the employer accordingly.
