Pension Ballot

8 November 2011

A reminder that the TSSA ballot for the Day of Action on 30 November to defend your pensions closes 14 November.

A reminder that the TSSA ballot for the Day of Action on 30 November to defend your pensions closes 14 November.

You should have received your ballot paper by now. Be sure to fill it in and return it in time for the 14 November closing date.

This ballot is being run in conjunction with all the other unions in Translink. We need a big YES vote and a high turnout to send a clear and united message to ministers that "enough is enough", that will help persuade them to withdraw their current unfair and unjustified attacks on your pensions.

Pressure from the trade union movement has seen the government move from its original proposals.

However all the government has spelled out is outline principles - there are no detailed offers for the different public service pension schemes that union members can make a decision on.

The trade union movement will continue to negotiate right up until 30 November and we will come back to members when any firm offer is received.

Until we have a firm offer we need to keep up the pressure and proceed with our plans for action on 30 November alongside other trade unions.

We note that already two of the biggest unions in Northern Ireland NIPSA and Unison have concluded their ballots with a successful yes vote for action on the 30 November.

TSSA and the other Unions are asking their members to vote YES on the ballot paper, we either “lie down” or “stand up” and save your pension, your call!
