NETWORK RAIL – SIGNALLER VERIFICATION FOR LINE BLOCKAGES
I have received correspondence from the Lead Officer as regards the issue of a second signaller verification for Line Blockages requesting that RMT consider a national view on this matter - leading to a national agreement with Network Rail (NR).
At its meeting on 30th March 2023, your National Executive Committee (NEC) noted and adopted the following report from its Health and Safety sub-committee:
We note the correspondence from the Lead Officer as regards the issue of second signaller verification for line blockages.
We instruct the General Secretary to arrange a joint meeting with NEC and representatives from the three NR national councils to develop a national position on this question.
I am acting in line with these instructions.
Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.
