As you will know the national consultation process resulted in a clear majority of members who participated in the exercise agreeing to accept the pension proposals.
The Service Group Executive therefore agreed to recommend members to support the proposals in the all member ballot which will start on 31st July and end on
24th August 2012.
Members nationally will decide in the ballot whether or not to agree the new proposals.
Details are on both the Branch and National websites but the Branch Executive agreed to hold a further meeting for any members who wished to raise any questions before voting in the ballot and this will be held on Friday 3rd August at 5.30pm in the Friends Meeting House.
Please draw this to the attention of members.
If you have any queries regarding the ballot please let me know.
Please urge all members to vote in this vital vote on the future of our pensions.
