This is an attempt to buy their loyalty for the impending dispute.
We know you will see through this and deliver the only message that matters - a massive YES vote if we ballot for Industrial Action.

We cannot allow the results of this dispute to be similar to the last pay dispute talks where our pension scheme was left in limbo and we just grovelled & accepted a bribe.
