Pay Ballot Results

Our industrial action ballot is now in and with a good return of over 31% - the results are set out below:

Question 1
Are you prepared to take part in a strike?
Number voting YES
395 (47.9%)
Number voting NO
429 (52.1%)

Question 2
Are you prepared to take part in action short of strike?
Number voting YES
704 (84%)
Number voting NO

From this result it is clear that we do not have a mandate to embark on strike action.

The ballot result for action short of strike will now be the subject of immediate discussion by the HCSA Executive Committee, which met last night to review the ballot results in full.

All members will be notified regarding next steps very soon. Eddie Saville HCSA General Secretary commented:
“We need to consider this result carefully to determine how we go forward, however I do want to thank members for taking part in this ballot and making their views known to us.”
