Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2015 – Freightliner Heavy Haul
STRIKE ACTION CALLED
Referring to our previous correspondence where I informed you of the ballot result and that you and your colleagues voted overwhelmingly in favour of taking industrial action over the matter of your pay rise. I write to you again to advise you that the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to instruct all affected members NOT TO BOOK ON for any shifts that commence between:-
• 00:01 hours on Thursday 22nd September 2016 and 23:59 hours on Friday 23rd September 2016
Now is the time to stand together with your colleagues. A show of strength will show management that you are not prepared to tolerate their delaying tactics any longer in offering a fair pay offer and real improvements to your working conditions.
SUPPORT THE ACTION – UNITY IS STRENGTH
As always, we remain available for further discussions and I will of course keep you advised of all further developments.
