The Secretary

Dear Colleague

Network Rail – Life Saving Rules Policy

There has been continued concern by RMT that the company were only paying lip service to the fair culture agreement. Further meetings have taken place with the employer and your national reps and officer where the company listened to your trade union and made appropriate alterations to a revised document.

The National Executive Committee made the following decision:

That we note the revised documents on file and that the matter was discussed at a recent meeting with our national representatives. This NEC is of the view that the revised documents and processes are now acceptable. However, we further note that a joint communication of the company and TUs is currently being drafted. Therefore, the General Secretary is instructed to inform the company of our acceptance on principle but that implementation is to be withheld until the joint communication is agreed. The draft communication to be placed before this NEC when completed.
Branches and Regional Councils be advised.
I am in the process of carrying out those decisions.
Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.

Yours sincerely,

Mick Cash
General Secretary
