It’s Time To Vote On The New EAs
The final step in the EA process is the ballot to determine whether application for certification of the Sydney Trains or NSW Agreement will be made along with execution of the deed. Ballot papers have been forwarded to member’s home addresses this week. Members have two weeks to complete the ballot paper and forward it in accordance with the written instructions.
It Is Important That Every Union Member Votes
It is vitally important that every member’s view be heard and counted. Whether you want to vote your Agreement “up” or “down”, it is critical your vote and your views are recorded. Leaving your decision for someone else to make is not an option, because only you can clearly express your views.
Failing to vote sends a message that you don’t care and this is not a message we should be sending to either management or the Government.
It is expected that the result of the ballot will be known within three days of the close of the ballot on Wednesday, 17 September 2014.
If you do not receive a ballot paper, you must contact one of the following addresses:
- Sydney Trains: firstname.lastname@example.org
- NSW Trains: email@example.com
