REMINDER - DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!
DISMISSAL, REBECCA HUGHES, TRAIN MANAGER, HOLYHEAD
VIRGIN WEST COAST
Further to previous correspondence you will be aware that RMT is balloting all Train Managers at Virgin West Coast over the appalling sacking of your fellow Train Manager colleague Rebecca Hughes. Voting papers were sent out to your home addresses last Thursday and members should have started to receive them by now.
If you or any of your colleagues have not received your ballot papers by Thursday 12th September 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 where you should ask for the Industrial Relations Department. One will then be sent out to you First Class. Please note the ballot closes on Thursday 19th September 2019.
What happened to Sister Hughes could happen to anyone and this frankly appalling decision must not be allowed to stand. Especially with ever more restrictive anti trade union balloting laws it is vitally important that we get a high turnout in this ballot. I therefore I urge all Train Managers to return a massive vote in favour of action. We must send a clear message to Virgin that they must reverse Rebecca’s disgraceful dismissal now!
DON'T WASTE YOUR VOTE!
VOTE ‘YES’ TO BOTH QUESTIONS
