EXETER DEPOT RELOCATION – STAGECOACH SOUTH WEST

Our Ref: B/15/1

13 January 2017


Dear colleague

EXETER DEPOT RELOCATION – STAGECOACH SOUTH WEST

You may be aware that a dispute situation was declared by your union over Stagecoach failing to address the concerns of you and your colleagues following the depot move.

The dispute focuses on two major concerns which your representatives have highlighted:

•    That all shifts book on an off at the same location
•    That the company provide adequate parking facilities and staff buses to allow staff to get to their place of work

It has been made clear from reports give to the National Executive Committee by your representatives and Lead Officer that you and your colleagues find the company’s stance totally unacceptable and that you are now asking for a ballot for industrial action to be commenced.

The NEC has endorsed the calls for a ballot and voting papers will be despatched today with voting closing on Tuesday 31st January 2017. I would therefore urge you to look out for your ballot papers and ensure they are returned by the closing date.

If any member has not received their ballot papers by Tuesday 24th January 2017 then please contact the union’s freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706 and we shall get a replacement sent out.

VOTE YES FOR STRIKE ACTION
VOTE YES FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE


Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
