Dear Colleague

INTRODUCTION OF NEW DOO ROUTES – SOUTHERN (GTR)
RMT CALLS FURTHER INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Further to my previous correspondence with regards to the above matter, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you and your colleagues for the continued support you have shown throughout this dispute. The strike action taken to date has been solidly supported by our Train Driver and Driver Instructor members.

I can now advise you that your union’s National Executive Committee has again considered this matter and has taken the decision to call further industrial action as follows:-

Members are instructed not to book on for any turns of duty that commence between:

•    00.01 hours on Tuesday 24th January 2017 and 23.59 hours on Wednesday 25th January 2017
•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Friday 27th January 2017.

I urge you to continue your support and stand shoulder to shoulder with your colleagues during the industrial action. Southern management must be left in no doubt that they have to meet our demands to abandon their high risk plans to introduce and/or extend Driver Only Operated routes on Southern (GTR) without agreement.

UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE ACTION
Best wishes.
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
