DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE – RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER

Dear Colleague,

Dismissal, C. Epton, Senior Conductor – East Midlands Trains

I write further to my previous correspondence, in which I advised you that you and your colleagues are being balloted for strike action and industrial action short of a strike against the company’s abuse of the MFA procedures following management’s refusal to conduct a Director’s Review into this matter.

Ballot papers will have now been sent out to your home addresses and will need to be returned before the closing date of First Post, Thursday 13th April 2017.

It is imperative that you use your vote to ensure your voices are heard loud and clear on this matter. I urge you all to vote ‘Yes’ to both questions and ensure that we get a massive turnout in this ballot. We must send management a clear and concrete message.

If you have not already received a ballot paper then please contact the RMT Freephone Helpline urgently on 0800 376 3706 or the RMT Switch board on 020 7387 4771 and ask for the industrial relations department, where a replacement ballot paper will be sent to you by first class post. Additionally, if you are aware of a colleague who has not received their ballot paper, ask them to call on of the above numbers to update their details and to receive a replacement ballot paper.

MAKE SURE YOU VOTE
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE
DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE – RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
