Network Rail – Electronic Driving Licence Checks

Our Ref: HSR/4/2
Head Office Circular: NP/114/17
20th July 2017

The Secretary

Dear Colleague

Network Rail – Electronic Driving Licence Checks

Further to Head Office Circular NP/138/15, 31st July 2015, I am writing to advise you that since the introduction of Vehicles Tracking Systems in Network Rail vehicles there appears to be a move on management behalf to subvert the agreement we reached with the company in this matter.

RMT have made no agreement, nor have not been involved in any discussions with the company to make changes to the current processes. Circular NP/138/15 states that those staff who do not wish to have their eligibility to drive checked through a third party would be able to continue to confirm their eligibility to drive through the completion of a manual form.

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

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
