Further information on Boots ballot and why Boots Pharmacists should derecognise the BPA
Boots pharmacists and pre-registration graduates now have the opportunity to vote for a better future, and an independent voice at work.
Pharmacists on holiday could miss out on ballot
Boots pharmacists and pre-registration graduates who are on annual leave mid-May could miss out on their chance to vote in the Boots ballot to derecognise the agreement with the BPA after the Central Arbitration Committee declined a request to extend the ballot period.
Vote in the Boots ballot and raise money for charity
The PDA Union have announced that they will be giving £1.00 to charity for each Boots pharmacist and pre-registration graduate who votes in the forthcoming ballot as a way to encourage participation in the ballot process. The charitable gesture is not dependent on which way Boots pharmacists and pre-registration graduates vote and will be paid irrespective of the outcome of the ballot. The funds will come directly from the PDA membership fees of Boots pharmacists only.
