ADDITIONAL HOURS WORKING RESULT WORKPLACE BALLOT

Following the promulgation of Branch Secretary Circular 008/2016, eligible branches in England and Wales and IRCs conducted a workplace ballot.

The Scrutineers and Tellers attended Cronin House on Thursday, 14th July 2016 and carried out an independent count of branch returns.

Please find attached for your information the signed scrutineers return.

Band 2 OSGS
Number of Ballot Slips issued 897
Number of Ballot Slips returned 763
Number of Votes IN FAVOUR (YES) 178
Number of Votes AGAINST (NO) 581
Number of Spoilt Ballot Slips 4

Band 3,4 and 5
Number of Ballot Slips issued 7366
Number of Ballot Slips returned 6683
Number of Votes IN FAVOUR (YES) 919
Number of Votes AGAINST (NO) 5740
Number of Spoilt Ballot Slips 24

Quite clearly in both ballots the POA membership have rejected the offer from NOMS. On behalf of the membership I will inform NOMS of the result and seek further negotiations.

Yours sincerely
