NETWORK RAIL – AREA AND LEAD UNION HEALTH AND SAFETY REPRESENTATIVE ELECTIONS 2020
I am writing to confirm that there has been a delay in holding election for Area and Lead Union Health and Safety Representatives. Elections for these posts should have taken place during summer 2020. Negotiations have been ongoing with the company over proposals for a revised National Health and Safety Procedure Agreement (PA) and this will have an effect on both sets of positions. It has been decided that current post holders will continue in post until such time as the new PA is agreed between RMT and Network Rail. In the meantime a process is in place for temporary vacancies that may arise from time to time to be filled.
I will keep you advised of developments.
