Dear Colleague

IMPOSITION OF ROSTERS & ABROGATION OF AGREEMENTS, TRAFFORD PARK – FREIGHTLINER LTD

I write with regards to the above matter and to inform you that negotiations have been held with your Senior Union Representatives and Freightliner management and I am pleased to inform you that I have received a proposed offer from the company.

The union’s National Executive Committee recognises that the offer comprises numerous points for consideration by you and your colleagues. Importantly the proposed agreement includes a compensatory payment of £100 for all our members, plus management confirm movement of turn off base roster is with mutual agreement and that a minimum of 2 Traffic Clerks will be rostered on Nights, regardless of workload.

Therefore, the Executive Committee has instructed me to hold an electronic referendum so that you and your colleagues can have your say on this offer. Your union’s National Executive Committee recommends acceptance of the companies offer.

In order to get a quick turnaround and bearing in mind the current Coronavirus situation, we are running this referendum electronically on this occasion. A full copy of Freightliner’s proposed offer is available on the voting site and I urge you to take part in this referendum.
