To: The Secretary
REINTRODUCTION OF COVID-19 MEASURES – NORTHERN TRAINS
Further to Head Office Circular NP/18/22, dated 21st January, your National Executive Committee, at its meeting on 1st February, resolved as follows:
We note the report from the Lead Officer and further note the response from Northern Trains Ltd MD Nick Donovan requesting that our union should reconsider our position.
Additionally, we note that the RMT has no industrial representation within the Drivers Council and further note an avoidance of disputes meeting took place on Friday 28th January and our Lead Officer received assurances that he would be appraised of all developments from his ASLE&F counterpart.
We therefore instruct the General Secretary to also liaise with the GS of ASLEF and seek an updated report from the Lead Officer and place it in front of the National Executive Committee at the earliest opportunity.
Relevant Branches and Regional Councils to be advised.
Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.
