In line with the decision of the members’ meeting, an email ballot on the offer began on Tuesday 28th August. The last day of voting will be Monday 10th September. Members affected (which includes all who are contractually based at Central Park and some at HOM99) are reminded to vote as soon as possible if you have not already done so.
Don’t forget that there are meetings to discuss the offer on Tuesday 4th September in MAN35 G CR2: 10:30-11am and 12-12:30pm. These are open to members and non-members.
