ALL INDUSTRIAL ACTION SUSPENDED
DISMISSAL, C MARGERISON – STADLER RAIL (MERSEYRAIL CONTRACT)
Further to previous correspondence I am writing to advise members that the union’s National Executive Committee has considered a report from your lead officer on this matter. Since June the union has instigated an indefinite overtime ban to try to force Stadler to reinstate Brother Margerison and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for delivering a mandate for action and all your support for your colleague throughout.
Your lead officer reports that the company are totally unwilling to even talk about this case and we also now understand brother Margerison has successfully found alternative employment in the rail industry. Having consulted with your company council representatives on the current situation it is clear there is no further desire amongst you and your colleague to continue with the industrial action. Consequently the National Executive Committee has suspended all industrial action in this dispute and members are instructed to work normally with immediate effect.
Once again I want to thank you for your solidarity support for your colleague throughout this dispute.
