I think this is being rolled out gradually, but since there have been delays in getting the UC system up together, it might take several years before you finally get switched over.

From what I understand, the changes in June will happen to new claimants of ESA rather than those who are already on it.
Try not to worry about it for the time being. As I said, it'll be some time before the change happens and they'll write to you before it happens to let you know.
