Criminal Bar Association Ballot Result
14 March 2022
The ballot result is out. The Criminal Bar Association (CBA) members have voted almost unanimously in favour of refusing to accept return work under the AGFS from 11th April unless Government agrees to the measures necessary to safeguard the long-term sustainability of the Criminal Bar and which are therefore essential to preserving a criminal justice system that meets the legitimate demands of the public.
94.34% of the 1,908 members who cast their votes have made it absolutely clear that they are not willing to be led by a Government timetable that brings no prospect of a settlement until the end of September.
