Dear RMT Member,
RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2023 – ALSTOM CREWE
I write to advise you that the ballot has now closed and the result is as follows:
Are you prepared to take strike action?
Number of individuals who were entitled to vote in the ballot: 15
Number of votes cast in the ballot: 13
Number of individuals answering “Yes” to the question: 7
Number of individuals answering “No” to the question: 6
Number of spoiled or otherwise invalid voting papers returned: 0
The Union’s National Executive Committee has noted that the above result meets the thresholds imposed by the anti-trade union laws and congratulates members for delivering a successful mandate for strike action in addition to the action short of a strike which is already in place.
As a reminder, members at Alstom Crewe have been instructed to undertake the following continuous industrial action short of a strike:
Not to undertake any rest day working, or overtime, and not to work any higher-grade duties from:
- 00:01 hours on Friday 17th November 2023 until further notice
I urge you to stand firm together and support the industrial action until this matter is resolved. I will keep members advised of any further developments.
