ACTION SUSPENDED – MEMBERS INSTRUCTED TO WORK NORMALLY
DISCIPLINARIES DURING INDUSTRIAL ACTION, COMMERCIAL GUARDS, BOURNEMOUTH & WEYMOUTH DEPOTS – SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY
Firstly, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for your tremendous support during this dispute. You have all demonstrated a clear solidarity and shown that you are determined in showing the company that their actions are totally unacceptable. I am sure your principled stance has not gone unnoticed by management.
A report has been received concerning the on-going overtime and rest day working ban on this dispute. Our representatives believe that this action should be suspended for the time being. The National Executive Committee has considered this matter and has endorsed our representative’s sentiments. However, I have informed the company that we remain in dispute.
Therefore, you are instructed to work normally with immediate effect.
(Please note that this instruction does not affect other Disputes (such as Role of the Guard) that you are involved in).
I trust this keeps you fully advised and I am sure you will all continue to support our colleagues during this dispute. I will write to you all again once I have received further information.
