Dear Colleague

RMT CALLS INDUSTRIAL ACTION OVER
ABUSE OF SUNDAY WORKING

ABROGATION OF ROSTERING AGREEMENTS, OFFICE BASED MANAGERS WORKING TRAINS ON SUNDAYS, TRAIN MANAGERS – CROSS COUNTRY

First and foremost, I would like to congratulate you all for voting overwhelmingly in the ballot for industrial action. Our Cross Country Train Manager members returned a magnificent result and should be applauded for standing together in solidarity.

Your union’s National Executive Committee has now had the opportunity to consider the magnificent result that our members returned in favour of taking strike action and action short of a strike and has taken the decision to call on all our Cross Country Train Manager members to take industrial action as follows:

All affected members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 19th November 2017
•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 26th November 2017
•    00.01 hours on Saturday 9th December 2017 and 23.59 hours on Sunday 10th December 2017
•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 24th December 2017
•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 31st December 2017

I urge you to continue to show your strength of feeling to the company and stand shoulder to shoulder with your colleagues on the days of action.

UNITY IS STRENGTH – SUPPORT THE ACTION

Best wishes.
