FREIGHTLINER PENSION DISPUTE - HEAVY HAUL
Following the closing of the industrial action ballot on 28th February 2019 I can advise you that RMT members have voted to take industrial action in support of their pensions. I would like to congratulate members who have shown that they are not prepared to accept management unacceptable pension proposals and have voted yes to take strike action.
The RMT National Executive Committee in support of the mandate our members at Freightliner Heavy Haul have given propose and request that you support the following Industrial action:
All Freightliner Heavy Haul members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between: -
- 0001 hours and 23.59 hours on Friday 15th March 2019
I would urge all Freightliner Heavy Haul members to continue to show the magnificent support and solidarity in support of their pensions with other Freightliner workers.
While it is hoped that a conclusion to this dispute can be found it is important that members continue to send a clear message to management that they will not accept their distasteful pension proposals.
I will of course keep you informed of any developments.
SUPPORT THE STRIKE
UNITY IS STRENGTH
