Consultative Ballot Result

7 September 2009

The result of the consultative ballot on a new attendance framework within Openreach.

YES: 8,54944%
NO: 10,72556%
Spoilt ballot papers: 40
Total ballot papers received: 19,31473%
Total ballot papers dispatched:  26,370

The proposed framework has therefore been rejected.

In light of this, and the stated potential consequences of not reaching agreement, an urgent meeting with BT has been arranged for Tuesday 8 September 2009 to discuss the implications.

Throughout the negotiations with Openreach, long term job security for members was central to the CWUís approach. This will remain as the Unionís prime objective in any future talks.
