All eligible members have received an email this evening, on the date the original industrial action strike ballot was due to open, to inform them that ballot papers will now be posted to them on Thursday 6 October by Civica Election Services. 

You’re eligible to vote if you work for an NHS employer on an Agenda for Change contract in England, Scotland or Wales, or if you work for the HSC in Northern Ireland. The ballot relates to pay.

You should post your completed ballot paper to arrive with Civica by 12 noon on Wednesday 2 November. It’s important you check that we have your up-to-date home address, employer details and job title so that every eligible member receives their postal ballot.

Our pay campaigning activity remains paused until after the funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth II, our royal patron for more than 65 years. It will recommence later next week.
