Boots Ballot: Final ballot communications sent to stores

The final set of communications to be sent to Boots stores has now been issued by both the PDAU and the company management. PDAU are encouraging all eligible boots pharmacists and pre-registration pharmacists to read the printed materials, make up their own mind about the ballot and vote ASAP.

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 work

Ballot papers were distributed to the home addresses of eligible pharmacists and pre-registration pharmacists on Monday 18 February and all those in receipt of a ballot pack should now have had the opportunity to vote.

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.
