RMT CALLS FURTHER STRIKE ACTION
AND ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

Dear Colleague

CLASS 360 METHOD OF WORKING - EAST MIDLANDS RAILWAY

Further to my previous correspondence with regards to the above dispute, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for standing firm during the days of industrial action. Our EMR Train Manager members have solidly supported the strike action taken to date.

Your union’s National Executive Committee has considered the matter and has taken the decision to call on all our East Midlands Railway Train Manager 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 and 23.59 hours on Sunday 3rd October 2021
  • 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 10th October 2021
  • 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 17th October 2021
  • 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 24th October 2021
  • 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 31st October 2021
  • 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 7th November 2021
  • 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 14th November 2021
  • 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 21st November 2021


Please note that you have already been advised of the strike action called for Sunday 19th September and Sunday 26th September 2021 which of course remains in place.

Additionally, the instruction to our EMR Train Manager members not to work 12 car trains alone remains in place until further notice.

I urge you all to support the strike and send the company a clear message that we will not allow managements careless attitude to prevail. We must stand shoulder to shoulder and united against this reckless behaviour.

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
