2016 Pay Ballot result…

Based on a 67% return of ballot papers issued, the result of the 2016 pay ballot is as follows:

For: 23%
Against: 77%
Spoilt: 0%

In view of the overwhelming rejection of the company pay offer we have formally asked AXA to reopen the pay negotiations to try and achieve an acceptable negotiated settlement.

Thank you to everyone who voted and the local workplace reps for the hard work they put in running the ballot.
