RMT CALLS STRIKE ACTION
BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, EDINBURGH WAVERLEY – RAIL GOURMET
First and foremost, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for returning an overwhelming YES vote in the ballot for industrial action. Our Rail Gourmet members at Edinburgh Waverley returned a staggering 100% vote in favour of Strike Action and Industrial Action Short of a Strike.
Your union’s National Executive Committee has now considered the matter and has taken the decision to call on all our affected members to take Strike Action. Therefore, you and your colleagues are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:
06.00 hours on Wednesday 14th July 2021 until 05.59 hours on Thursday 15th July 2021
06.00 hours on Saturday 17th July 2021 until 05.59 hours on Monday 19th July 2021
06.00 hours Saturday 31st July 2021 until 05.59 hours on Sunday 1st August 2021
I ask you all to show your support and stand shoulder to shoulder during the days of industrial action. We demand Rail Gourmet put an immediate stop to this toxic environment and treat our members with the respect they deserve.
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 STRIKE ACTION
