The Secretary

Dear Colleague

High Octane Fuel – Ayr Station

Further to Head Office Circular NP/081/17, 25th May 2017 I am writing to update you on this matter. We wrote to the company on 26th May 2017 and asked them to intervene in this matter and to revert to the original method of working which was to stable the fuel wagons at Falkland Yard prior to onward dispatch to Prestwick Airport. To date we have not received a reply. I have written again to the company demanding they respond to our concerns.

We also raised our concerns with comrades at the FBU and they have informed me that they have passed the matter to their Scottish Regional Secretary for their action. I have instructed our Regional Organiser for Scotland to make contact with his opposite number at the FBU and to place a report back in front of our NEC.

I will keep you informed of developments with this case.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
