Fórsa members working in the public sector will vote to decide whether their union backs acceptance or rejection of the proposed new agreement, Building Momentum. Ahead of the ballot of members, Fórsa has appealed to members to ensure their contact details are up-to-date to guarantee their voice is heard.
The union is asking members to visit the ‘Update My Details’ page and provide a personal email address (not a work address), home postal address, and mobile phone number.
Fórsa wants to ensure your voice is heard and to make sure your vote in the upcoming ballot is counted it’s vital that your union can make contact with you.
Fórsa is seeking personal (rather than work) details because this reduces the chance of union communications being blocked or lost in employer’s systems. This information will be held in strict compliance with the union’s data protection policy, and used only for communications on union matters like the forthcoming ballot.
Fórsa member Donna Mooney, of the Revenue Officers branch, features in the union’s video message. “Fórsa wants to ensure your voice is heard, and to make sure your vote in the upcoming ballot is counted, so it’s vital that your union can make contact with you,” she says.
Members are also encouraged to share this message and video with colleagues who may not receive the Fórsa news bulletin.
To update your details quickly and easily visit the ‘update my details’ page on the Fórsa website and complete the online form. (IMPORTANT NOTE: Your full name on our membership database must match the name on your pay-advice email or payslip.)
