Boots pharmacists vote to recognise new union

Boots pharmacists have voted "Overwhelmingly" for a new union to have recognition amid concerns they are overworked. Boots said it was "Not the result that we had hoped for" but it had "Listened to the voice" of its pharmacists. In order to finally do this they had to de-recognise a non-independent union called the Boots Pharmacists' Association. Rew Caplan, pharmacy and retail operations director for Boots UK, said: "We will now enter into a negotiation with the PDA over the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, how it will work and what it will cover and we'll continue to keep our pharmacists updated on this process over the coming weeks." About 2,500 Boots pharmacists are members of the PDA union and about 1,200 are members of the Boots Pharmacists' Association.
