Not had a vote shambles but if I won’t life insurance no problem
The ballot went out by email and post. We tried to get in touch with members ahead of this to make sure we had the correct details for sending the ballot. In the posts on pay in the run up to the ballot we asked members to check that their details were up to date.
To make sure you receive any industrial action ballot or future communications, please check your details are correct by logging into MyUnite online or by contacting the Unite Edinburgh office on 0131 556 9676.
As far as I am aware these are my personal information as a Unite member.
