Collective Agreement - Proposed Settlement

The front page of Newsletter 13/2003 contains an error in that the bullet points commencing “Working Parties” and “Greater flexibility” have been transposed.

There is no Working Party regarding greater flexibility for certain Black Watch workers as point 9. of the details of the proposed settlement outlines.

Ratification Meetings

These are presently being organized and details will be released shortly.

Ratification meetings are a requirement of the Employment Relations Act. No proposed settlement can become operational as a Collective Agreement until members have
ratified it; i.e. voted to accept it.

A secret ballot will be held within each Local. That ballot will ask members to vote either YES or NO to acceptance/ratification of the proposed settlement.

Local ballots will be aggregated to give a nationwide result.

The proposed settlement will be accepted/ratified if more than 50% of the valid votes cast are in favour.
