BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, EDINBURGH DEPOT – RAIL GOURMET
Further to my previous correspondence with regards to the above matter. First and foremost, I would like to thank you and your colleagues for returning a magnificent YES vote in the ballot for industrial action.
Regrettably, despite the best efforts of your Union Representatives trying to resolve the following issues, management continue to ignore our concerns:
•Bullying and Harassment of Staff
•Abuse of the Disciplinary Procedures
•Non Payment of Additional Duties
Your union’s National Executive Committee has considered the matter and believes that the only way to get Rail Gourmet to address all of the above issues immediately is by taking strike action.
Therefore, the Executive Committee has instructed you and your colleagues to take strike action and not to book on for any shifts that commence between:
•00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Tuesday 30th October 2018
I urge you to stand shoulder to shoulder against Rail Gourmet’s blatant disregard for you and your colleagues. This situation is totally unfair and totally unacceptable. The only way to get management to address these issues with the urgency they require is by taking strike action.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT YOUR UNION – SUPPORT THE STRIKE ACTION
