Criminal Bar Association Votes Against Continued Legal Action
The CBA membership were balloted on the following question:
“DO YOU WISH TO CONTINUE ‘NO RETURNS’ AND DAYS OF ACTION UNTIL ALL THE CUTS AND REDUCTIONS IN [SOLICITORS’] CONTRACTS ARE ABANDONED?”
The total number of votes cast were 1878
629 ‘Yes’ votes were cast being 33.49% of the total number of votes cast.
1249 ‘No’ votes were cast being 66.51% of the total number of votes cast.
Accordingly, the ballot is in favour of acceptance of the deal offered to the Bar and the suspension of further action.
