Dear Colleague

Network Rail – LNE Workforce Safety Advisors

Following a concerted campaign by our Network Rail health and safety reps in Network rail’s LNE Route I am pleased to announce that Network Rail’s decision to reduce the number of Workforce Safety Advisors on the Route by 50% has been reversed. The campaign involved taking this issue to the National Safety Council where our representatives placed a well-argued case. Following this meeting negotiations took place with Route management and the posts have now been re-instated.

Our representatives have acted in an exemplary manner and in the best interests of our members and are to be congratulated for their efforts.

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

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
