Eurostar strike ballot over Olympics payments

Eurostar strike ballot over Olympics payments

14 June 2024

RMT Press Office:

RMT will ballot Eurostar International members over fair and equal payments for work during the Paris Olympics.

The decision follows the company's failure to meet the union's demands for equitable compensation during the major sports event.
All RMT members at Eurostar International will be balloted for industrial action, including a potential strike and action short of a strike in the form of an overtime ban and no rest day working.
The ballot will close on 11 July.
RMT will also write to Eurostar contractors Mitie, Churchill, and Rail Gourmet, demanding they match any proposed Eurostar payments.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "Eurostar workers deserve fair and equal payments for their work during the upcoming Paris Olympics.
"Our demands are very reasonable and we will take whatever action we need to, to ensure our members receive what they rightfully deserve.
"Eurostar and its contractors need to respond positively to our requests in order to avoid disruption during the Paris Olympics."
