    Your union must have a vote (a ‘ballot’) that’s properly organised according to legal rules. A ballot for industrial action must: . be supervised by a qualified independent person (a ‘scrutineer’ - often someone from an organisation like the Electoral Reform Society) appointed by the union if over 50 members are being balloted . be held before the union asks members to take or continue taking action . be open to all members the union wants to take action . be a postal ballot where members vote by marking a box on a voting paper and return it in a prepaid envelope . include information on what the ballot is about and where to post your vote The union must tell everyone entitled to vote how many people voted, the number of yes votes, no votes or spoiled papers as soon as it can after the ballot. It must also give the employer one week’s notice of the start of the ballot and tell them the result as soon as possible once it’s available.
