Dear Colleague
RMT SUSPENDS STRIKE ACTION

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS TERMS & CONDITIONS
SERVEST UK (GWR CONTRACT)

Further to my letter dated the 7th February 2017 with regards to the above matter and where I informed you that your union’s National Executive Committee has taken the decision to call additional strike action over the company’s appalling treatment of you and your colleagues.

I am now able to inform you that your Senior Union Representatives have been in discussions with the company and some progress has been made. The RMT has agreed to further talks with Servest UK under the auspices of ACAS and this meeting will take place on Tuesday 14th February 2017.

Therefore, your union’s National Executive Committee has taken the decision to suspend the strike action which was due to commence at 05.59 hours on Saturday 11th February 2017 and 05.58 hours on Tuesday 14th February 2017 and you are advised to work as normal.

I will, of course, keep you fully advised on any further developments.

Best wishes.
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
