TO ALL AREA COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVES
ANNUAL LEAVE ALLOWANCE – NETWORK RAIL MAINTENANCE & OPERATIONS
I write in relation to the Holiday Pay Supplement Agreement between RMT and Network Rail in order to clarify the entitlement of those members who have left the company to ensure they are fully aware their entitlement and how to claim it. Section 6.2.1 of the agreement outlined below confirms that members who left employment between August 2016 and March 2018 (The agreement date) are entitled to the HPS payment and can claim it if they have not already done so:-
“6.2. Leavers; will have the same formula applied pro-rata to reflect the number of weeks completed during the Reference Period in accordance with contractual leave entitlements at the time of leaving.
6.2.1. Those employees who left the Company between August 2016 and up to the effective date of this agreement will be paid any HPS owing should they make themselves known to the Company before 31 December 2018.”
I would be grateful if you could contact any members or former members that you are aware of that may have left Network Rail for whatever reason during this period and advise them that they should contact Network Rail immediately stating that they wish to claim under this agreement.
Members who may be uncertain as to whether they may be eligible are advised to contact Network Rail in any case. It may be helpful if claimants provided their full personal contact details, their own NR Payroll number, National Insurance number and former work location.
Claims should be sent to:

I would be grateful if you could bring this to the attention of any affected members within your area.
