Dear colleague

DISMISSAL, S COLDERLEY, CARDIFF – NETWORK RAIL MAINTENANCE

I am writing to advise you that the ballot in defence of your sacked colleague Stephen Colderley has had to be re-run due to a number of irregularities in the information we had on our members’ job details. The original ballot which was previously sent out therefore will not be counted.

The information has now been corrected and a new ballot will open on Tuesday 22nd August 2017 and I would urge you to make sure you fill in your voting paper and return a massive majority in favour of taking industrial action to support Brother Colderley.

It is absolutely imperative that you don’t waste your vote as the new anti-union laws threaten our ability to defend members in the absence of a high turnout of members in the voting. We cannot allow the Tory laws to stop your union acting in our members’ interest. So fill in your voting paper and vote YES to defend Brother Colderley.

As I say above, the new ballot opens on 22nd August and all voting papers should be returned by first post on Tuesday 5th September 2017.

SUPPORT BROTHER COLDERLEY
VOTE YES TO STRIKE ACTION &
YES FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE


Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
