Dear Colleague

INTRODUCTION OF NEW DOO ROUTES – SOUTHERN (GTR) - Driver Members

Further to my previous correspondence with regards to the above matter, first and foremost I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you and your colleagues for the support you have shown in the ballot for industrial action. Your union’s National Executive Committee has again considered this matter and has taken the decision to call industrial action as follows:-

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

•    00.01 hours on Tuesday 13th December 2016 and 23.59 hours on Wednesday 14th December 2016
•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Friday 16th December 2016
•    00.01 hours on Monday 9th January and 23.59 hours on Saturday 14th January 2017

In addition, members are instructed not to work any non rostered Sundays, any rest days or any other voluntary overtime commencing 00.01 hours on Tuesday 6th December 2016 until further notice.

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.
