Prospect have informed the company of the ballot result in order to ensure that the relevant increases (as set out in mem-074/11) are applied appropriately from the effective date of the increase.
Turnout in the ballot was good and I would like to thank all members for taking part in the democratic process. For the first time in Cable & Wireless we used an electronic ballot. This was due to the tight timescales to ensure that we could provide a result prior to the pay run. I apologies for the technical difficulties that occurred but I thank you for your patience and for taking part in the ballot.
It is always important that members take an active interest in their terms and conditions - and as a reminder, that extends to talking to your colleagues to encourage them to join you in your union.
Thanks to the branch officers for leading in these pay negotiations and for organising the ballot.
