Rates of Pay and Conditions of Service 2018 – South Western Railway
The referendum of you and your colleagues on South Western Railway’s pay offer has concluded and the result is as follows:
Are you prepared to accept the company’s offer?
Total votes cast
Number voting YES
Number voting NO
Your National Executive Committee has noted this result and instructed me to advise the company of your rejection of the offer and arrange an urgent meeting to discuss this result and that an improved offer must be forthcoming.
I can advise you that the NEC has also stated that, should no improved offer be forthcoming from the company, then it may decide to ballot all affected grades for industrial action.
I will of course keep you advised of all further developments in this matter.
