Dear Brother/Sister

CONSULTATIVE BALLOT – SCOTLAND

The Union recently conducted a consultative ballot of Scottish members in relation to

discussions around pension matters. The ballot was conducted and scrutinised by Popularis.

Popularis is an independent organisation which scrutinises ballots and elections for numerous

trade unions and other organisations and are authorised to do so.

The question and result are set out below for your information:

Are the proposals offered to Scottish firefighters by the Scottish government sufficient to

avoid calling strike action at this time?

YES 1106 55%

NO 922

Spoilt ballot papers 8

Total ballot papers received 2036 38%

Total ballot papers dispatched 5301

Best wishes.

Yours fraternally,

MATT WRACK

GENERAL SECRETARY
