FURLOUGH ARRANGEMENTS – CORONAVIRUS – STADLER RAIL (MERSEYRAIL CONTRACT)
As you will no doubt be aware, Stadler Rail wrote to you and your colleagues last week requesting that you agree to its terms for putting staff on to the government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – the Furlough.
I am writing to advise you that, as the provisions of the scheme mean that Stadler intends paying its staff 100% salary while you are furloughed, your union’s National Executive Committee has accepted the proposals formally.
I wish you well and your union hopes that you and your families are staying safe.
