Boots Ballot: Pharmacists should read latest PDAU publication

It's important that pharmacists at Boots, who are eligible to vote in the recognition ballot, are well informed in order that they can make an informed decision before voting. Here you can read the latest publication sent to pharmacists at their workplaces.

Thu 14th February 2019 PDA Union

During this ballot campaign the PDAU have been sending publications direct to the home addresses of those eligible to vote (via the appointed independent person who is managing the process), sending items into Boots branches via the weekly red bag, as well as messaging PDAU members and making themselves available via social media and online in the company’s pharmacy unscripted forum, which is available to Boots pharmacists.

You can read the latest publication here.  The publication helps explain some of the factors which pharmacists have asked us about.

recognition campaign publications

We would like to invite any pharmacist still deciding how to vote, to contact us and ask any questions they feel would help them reach a decision.  Boots pharmacists are also actively encouraged to access the pharmacy unscripted forum to read and contribute to the debate happening there.  We believe you will see for yourself the difference between the advantages of PDAU recognition and how the company would rather control your input into your safety and reward at wok

Ballot papers will be distributed to eligible pharmacists and pre-registration pharmacists at Boots on Monday 18 February 2019 by mail to their home address .  

If you consider that you are eligible to vote and have not received a ballot paper by 22 February 2019, please contact the CAC Case Manager, Linda Lehan, by email at giving your full name and address.  

If you have recently changed your address and you have not informed your employer you should do so as soon as possible to ensure you receive your ballot paper on time.
