Dear Colleague

FGW – Strike Safety Discrepancies

During the recent industrial dispute and strike action by RMT members on FGW, reports came in to Unity House concerning a number of safety concerns identified by our members. The issues were raised with FGW and the company’s response was considered by the General Grades Committee who have noted and adopted the following report of their Health and Safety Sub-committee.

“We thank our representatives for their diligence on these matters and the reports they have provided. Whilst we note the response of the company we remain diligent and aware on this matter as we proceed onward with this dispute.
Branches and Regional Councils be advised.”
I am acting in accordance with these instructions and will keep you informed of any further developments. Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of all relevant members.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
