Dear Colleague

IMPOSITION OF ROSTERS, CATERING GRADES – GREAT WESTERN RAILWAYS

Further to my letter dated the 28th February 2017 with regards to the above matter, I can now advise you that a local level meeting has been held and a satisfactory agreement has been reached between your union representatives and GWR management over the implementation of rosters.

The matter has been subject to recent consideration by your union’s National Executive Committee who notes that an agreement has been reached to our member’s satisfaction. Further, the NEC notes that your Lead Officer has written to Great Western Railway (GWR) to explore the viability of developing a links training programme that will include the opportunity for Local Divisional Council Representatives to meet with GWR roster planners.

Once I have received a response from GWR regarding the proposed links training programme I will place the matter back before the NEC for further consideration.

On behalf of myself and the NEC, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Lead Officer and Catering Representatives for all their hard work and efforts in bringing this matter to a satisfactory conclusion.

I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter.

Best wishes.
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
