STRIKE SUSPENDED – PLEASE WORK AS NORMAL ON THURSDAY & FRIDAY


Dear Colleagues

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2015 – ARRIVA TRAINS WALES (DRIVERS)

I can confirm your union has been in further talks with ATW regarding the current Train Drivers dispute. I am pleased to report that the company has improved its position, particularly with regards to the four day week.  In addition to this, the company wishes to have further discussions to reach an improved position in the following areas:-

•    Further improve spare movements.
•    Access the feasibility of tackling the PNB issue.
 
After careful consideration, the union’s executive committee has decided to suspend the industrial action to allow these negotiations to take place. Therefore the strike action which was due to start at 00:01 hours on Thursday 22nd October 2015 has been suspended.  

You are instructed to work as normal on Thursday 22nd October 2015 and Friday 23rd October 2015.

I will, of course, keep you advised of any further developments as and when they arise in this matter.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
