CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT – OTM OPERATORS – COLAS RAIL
Colas Rail recently tabled proposals to change the contracts of employment of their OTM Operators. The changes can be summarised as follows:
• Move from 32 plus 4 weekends to a basic 30 weekend contract
• Change in the current rostering pattern of 2 weeks confirmed and 3 weeks indicative to a 5 week fixed roster
Your representatives have been consulted over this matter and were of the view that the proposals should be accepted, a view which has now been endorsed by your National Executive Committee.
It is now the intention to introduce the new rostering arrangements from week 40 onwards with the weekend changes to begin from 29th March 2019.
Please speak to your representatives should you have any queries on this matter.
