Disability review ballot result

Disability ballotA consultative ballot for Industrial Action was carried out with UNISON members at all grades within Disability Services.

267 ballot papers were sent out and although there was a positive vote in favour of taking action it was on a low turnout. The branch will now consider the outcome of this ballot and how to take it forward but we will not be proposing that a full ballot takes place.

The issues still remain and morale is at an all-time low. We now have 3 shop stewards who we will work with the branch to try and address the issues  the first meetings will take place after the Transformation Programme has eased.
