The template agenda and motions were sent out by email on Friday at 17:13. Thanks to all the members who spotted the typo in Motion B – “Friday 9th January” should have read “Friday 8th January”.
Once you’ve been to a meeting (or if you can’t get to one), please vote on the offer using the voting buttons included in the email notice sent out on Friday at 15:33. Votes must be received by 1pm on Thursday 10th December.
Your elected UNITE Combine Committee is recommending you vote to REJECT the offer because it is vague and woolly, offering little of substance on Jobs, Pay or Pensions.
Rejecting a company offer does not mean being unwilling to talk to the company. It means saying that the offer isn’t good enough and that the company should offer more.
Don’t forget that many non-members won’t have seen the company offer. Why not draw it to their attention, invite them to make up their own minds whether they think it’s good enough – and ask them to join?
