REMINDER - DON'T FORGET TO VOTE! FLEET DEPOT STRATEGY, WALES AND BORDERS FRANCHISE, KEOLIS AMEY
Recent discussions with Transport for Wales Rail Services were an opportunity for the company to reassure you and your colleagues over the future of Fleet Maintenance within this franchise. Unfortunately, TfW RS not only failed to provide any reassurance over your future employment within the franchise, but it also dropped a bombshell over future pension provision if/when the transfer of services and jobs move to CAF and Stadler.
This is obviously an unacceptable situation and that is why your National Executive Committee has decided to ballot you and your colleagues for strike action and action short of a strike.
If you or any of your colleagues have not received your ballot papers by now 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 9th May 2019 . I urge you to keep up the magnificent support for your union and vote YES to both questions in the forthcoming re ballot. It is imperative that we again 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. Don't waste your vote!
