ACQUISITION OF C2C BY TRENITALIA

Our Ref: BR2/15/6

Dear colleague

ACQUISITION OF C2C BY TRENITALIA

You would have heard the news earlier this morning that the National Express group has sold c2c to Italian state operator Trenitalia. The sale is awaiting approval from the Department for Transport, but it’s not expected to be halted.

With this being a sale of business rather than a contract change, there is no TUPE process to be followed and all your existing terms and conditions, pay, pensions and working arrangements remain unchanged. While that may be the case, your union will be seeking a meeting with the new owners at the earliest opportunity to ensure that the sale process has minimum effect on the day to day work of you and your colleagues.

I will write to you again should any further developments arise in this matter.


Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
