The Secretary

Dear Colleague

Network Rail Roles and Responsibilities Programme

Further to Head Office Circular NP/087/16, 19th March 2016 a number of further meetings have been held and the problem over which standard should be used in the E Midlands area until any new system is in place have been raised with the company. Further reports have been considered by the NEC who have carried the following resolution:

Further to our Decision NWW, 10th March 2016 we note the latest correspondence on file and the frustration of our representatives. We reiterate that the 019 standard be used as agreed previously. We further note that a meeting is planned for the 27th May 2016 in which Network Rail will feedback their plans for going forward. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to place a report of this meeting back before the NEC.

Relevant Branches and Regional Councils to be advised.

I am acting in accordance with this instruction and will update you as the case continues. Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.

Yours sincerely
Mick Cash
General Secretary
