Dear Colleague

Network Rail – Roles & Responsibilities Programme

Further to Head Office Circular NP/115/15 18th June 2015 and following further trials and subsequent meetings with Network Rail and our members in the East Midlands on this subject, I am writing to update you on progress with this important matter. The General Grades Committee have noted and adopted the following report.

“Further to our decision of GWW 18th June 2015 we note that further meetings have been held between the company and our representatives. However, despite the best efforts of our representatives and their significant input into the trials within the East Midlands Area, they have shown that there are still serious shortcomings with this system. It is clear from the reports we have received that our members becoming increasingly frustrated with this whole system. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to write to Network Rail calling for them to suspend the trials and for further work in developing the system to take place. All developments on this matter to be placed back in front of the GGC. Relevant branches and Regional Councils to be advised”

I am acting in accordance with those instructions and I have written to Network Rail on the matter. I will keep you informed of any further developments with this case. Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
