The Trade Union Act makes it more difficult than ever for Unions to take lawful industrial action to protect members and working conditions.
Ballot papers not returned are effectively counted as no votes. Turnout thresholds mean that even a large Yes vote may not give a mandate to take action.
That's why its more important than ever that our membership lists are up to date and addresses and contact details are as accurate as possible.
So if you have recently moved or aren't receiving the ASLEF Journal please contact your branch secretary or local rep. Or just send me a message and I will make sure it is passed on. We need your help to make sure that your union can stand up for you when its needed.
