ALL INDUSTRIAL ACTION SUSPENDED
IMPOSITION OF ROSTERS, STATION SUPERVISORS – ARRIVA RAIL NORTH
Further to my letter dated the 15th February 2018 with regards to the above matter and where I advised you of the industrial action due to take place from 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Saturday 3rd March 2018. I am now able to inform you that an Avoidance of Disputes meeting has been held and significant concessions have been made by Arriva Rail North towards resolving this dispute.
Therefore, your union’s National Executive Committee has recently considered the matter and has taken the decision to suspend the industrial action on Saturday 3rd March 2018 and members are instructed to work normally.
Once again, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you and your colleagues for your rock solid determination and resilience displayed throughout this dispute. This has no doubt forced management to revise their previous position of imposing detrimental rostering arrangements.
