RMT CALLS ADDITIONAL STRIKE ACTION
AND ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

Dear Colleague

BREACH OF DIGNITY & RESPECT POLICY, FLEET MAINTENANCE STAFF, PERTH DEPOT – ABELLIO SCOTRAIL

Further to my letter dated the 7th May 2021 with regards to the above dispute, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for standing firm during the days of industrial action.

Your union’s National Executive Committee has again considered the matter and has taken the decision to call on all our Abellio Scotrail Traincare Grade A1.3, A3.3, B2.2 members to take further industrial action. Therefore, you and your colleagues are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

00.01 hours on Tuesday 15th June 2021 until 23.59 hours on Wednesday 16th June 2021
00.01 hours on Tuesday 29th June 2021 until 23.59 hours on Wednesday 30th June 2021

Additionally, the instruction to our Abellio Scotrail Traincare Grade A1.3, A3.3, B2.2 members not to work any Rest Days or undertake any Higher Grade Duties remains in place until further notice.

I ask you all to show your support and stand shoulder to shoulder during the days of industrial action, to demand that Abellio Scotrail provide absolute assurances that the manager in question has been sanctioned under the policy, rather than promoted and rewarded for the misconduct.

I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I will, of course, update you on any further developments.

UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Yours sincerely

Michael Lynch
General Secretary
