Head Office Circular: NP/159/15

The Secretary

Dear Colleague

Network Rail – Roles and Responsibilities Programme

Further to Head Office Circular NP/137/15 31st July 2015, I am writing to advise you of further decisions and developments with this matter. The General Grades Committee have noted and adopted the following resolution.

Further to our decision GWW 28th July 2015 we note that further meetings have been held between the company and our representatives. However, we note that despite the intervention of the ORR the company is still dragging its heels on this issue. Whilst a number of shortcomings in the system have been identified, by the ORR, have been conveyed to Network Rail. The company appear to have no coherent plan on how to address these issues i.e. Procedures, Software & Resources.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to arrange a meeting between Lead Officer, Health & Safety Officer, East Midlands Safety Reps and the GGC to discuss the way forward with this project.

Branches and Regional Councils to be advised

I am acting in accordance with these instructions and will keep you informed of any further developments. Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of all relevant members.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
