Your Agreement is going to ballot!

Your delegates have voted to go to ballot, with an ‘In-principal agreement subject to drafting and ballot’, which means members will only vote once the drafting of clauses has occurred.

Once drafting is completed to a satisfactory level, members will be sent an email to vote in the ballot.
