Dear Colleague

Infrastructure Failures

On giving consideration to a resolution from the AGM the General Grades Committee noted and adopted the following report of their Health and Safety Sub Committee:

We note the pressure put on our signalling grades members by     infrastructure failures that are a result of the cuts and under resourcing imposed on the rail industry by this Government. We instruct the General Secretary to meet     with Network Rail to raise our concerns in this matter. Further developments to be placed back in front of this General Grades Committee.

Branches and Regional Councils be advised.

I am acting in accordance with these instructions and will keep you informed of developments with this case.

Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
Acting General Secretary
