    Industrial action happens when trade union members are in a dispute with their employers that can’t be solved through negotiations. A trade union can only call for industrial action if a majority of its members involved support it in a properly organised postal vote - called a ‘ballot’. Before organising a ballot, a union must decide which members affected by a dispute it wants to ask to take industrial action. It must tell all members entitled to vote and the employer what the ballot results were. A trade union calls industrial action by telling members and the employer when and how this action will be taken. This should be done by a trade union official or committee that has the legal right to do so. Your voting paper must have said who this is.
