Reply To: 83.2% Vote for Industrial Action

Back to Forum


Again, less than 50% of crew have voted to strike. And that’s in spite of the fact that BASSA made it clear that the dispute is no longer about striking so anyone voting Yes knew they didn’t have to walk the walk.

It is sad that so many guillable misguided fools have fallen for BASSA’s propaganda campaign.

The number of Yes votes is down substantially since the first ballot (nearly 4,000 votes). As is Unite’s membership (nearly 3,000 fewer members).

The bullying, victimisation and intimidation in this dispute has been by the BASSA militants, not the company.
