DISMISSAL, JOHN GALLAGHER, PLYMOUTH – RAIL GOURMET

To all Rail Gourmet Members at Plymouth Depot

Our Ref: HC/4/1

5th February 2020


Dear Colleague

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE
RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER BY THURSDAY 13TH FEBRUARY 2020
DISMISSAL, JOHN GALLAGHER, PLYMOUTH – RAIL GOURMET

All Rail Gourmet members located at Plymouth Depot should now have received their voting paper for industrial action. If you have not done so already please make sure you return your voting paper to Civica Election Services by the closing date of Thursday 13th February 2020.

This dispute is about the unfair and unjust dismissal of your fellow colleague, John Gallagher. The harsh decision taken by Rail Gourmet to dismiss Brother Gallagher demonstrates the company’s total disregard towards our member and has had a huge personal impact on John and his family.

If you have not received your ballot paper please contact the RMT Helpline on 0800 376 3706 and request a replacement voting paper. Alternatively, you may wish to contact RMT Head Office Reception on 0207 387 4771 and ask for the Industrial Relations Department. A ballot paper will be sent out to you First Class post. Please note the ballot closes on Thursday 13th February 2020.

I urge you to vote ‘YES’ for strike action and ‘YES’ for industrial action short of a strike to get Rail Gourmet to agree to a remedy that satisfies the aspirations for justice. It is imperative that we get a massive return in the ballot for industrial action so we are not prevented from acting on your wishes due to the anti-trade union laws. Do not waste your vote.

SUPPORT YOUR UNION - RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER
VOTE ‘YES’ TO BOTH QUESTIONS IN THE
BALLOT FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION


Best wishes.

Mick Cash
General Secretary
