Ballot Opens: Tuesday 22 January

Ballot Closes: Tuesday 5 March

Voting YES for industrial action is the only avenue left for us to pursue an acceptable cost of living pay rise. Not voting or voting "no" would mean we would have to accept the Employer's offer which will further erode the real terms value of our pay.

Members should begin to receive their ballot papers on Thursday 24 January. If you have not received your paper by Monday 28 January, then please contact the EIS Membership Department at membership@eis.org.uk or phone 0131 225 6244 as a matter of urgency.

Members are asked to complete and post their ballot papers as soon as possible. For votes to count, ballot papers must reach the Independent Scrutineer, ERBS, 33 Clarendon Road, London, N8 ONW, no later than 12 noon on Tuesday 5 March when the ballot will close.

The ULA Executive is recommending you vote YES in this Ballot.
