The ballot opens today,  the  12th of June and closes on the  28th of June.

David Avery, Prospect negotiations officer, said

“The offer we have received from HIAL is sufficiently different to the original offer that we want to give members the chance to properly consider it and vote on whether to accept it.

“Prospect is not making a recommendation on whether to accept or reject the offer and so as to remain neutral we will not be making any further statement at this time.”
