TO ALL ABELLIO GREATER ANGLIA CONDUCTORS AT IPSWICH, NORWICH AND LIVERPOOL STREET

Dear Colleagues,
 
Dismissal – C Knapp - Conductor – Abellio Greater Anglia

We recently received a resolution from Norwich Branch over the disgraceful treatment of your colleague Cliff Knapp who has been sacked by Abellio Greater Anglia under the Managing for Attendance Procedure. The decision to sack Cliff was disgraceful and we firmly believe the MFA Procedure has been completely abused in this case.

It is clear that members are appalled at the treatment of Brother Knapp and the situation has been considered by the Union’s National Executive Committee. The NEC has decided to ballot all Conductor members at Ipswich, Norwich and Liverpool Street for industrial action and urgent preparations are currently being made.  

We believe the actions of AGA in this case are appalling and I urge you to show support for your colleague in the forthcoming ballot. Please note that for legal requirements there will be a separate ballot for each depot.

I would be grateful if you could ensure your membership details are up to date either by logging into the website, contacting the Helpline on 0800 376 3706 or emailing us on info@rmt.org.uk

DEFEND CLIFF KNAPP
UNITY IS STRENGTH

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
