Dear Colleague

FURLOUGH ARRANGEMENTS, CORONAVIRUS – FREIGHTLINER LTD, FREIGHTLINER HEAVY HAUL & FREIGHTLINER RAILPORTS

Further to my letter dated the 3rd September 2020 with regards to the company’s proposals to extend their Furlough arrangements until the 31st October 2020.

I can now advise you that I have received an update report from the Lead Officer indicating that the company is extending their Furlough arrangements until the 31st January 2021 and this will maintain 100% basic pay for any remaining workers on Furlough.

The matter has been considered by the union’s National Executive Committee and I have been instructed to notify the company of our acceptance.

I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter.

Best wishes.

Mick Cash
General Secretary
