STRIKE ACTION SUSPENDED


Dear colleague

INTRODUCTION OF NEW DOO ROUTES - SOUTHERN (GTR)

I have received an invitation from Transport Secretary Chris Grayling to meet to discuss ways of resolving the ongoing dispute with Southern over the ongoing disputes with regards to Role of the Guard and the Introduction of New DOO Routes, subject to your union suspending the planned strike action.

The matter has been discussed by your National Executive Committee today and has decided to suspend the strike action by our Driver members scheduled to take place on 1st , 2nd and 4th August to allow for the meeting with Chris Grayling to take place. A report on the progress made at these talks is to be placed back before the NEC by 1st August.

I will of course keep all members updated on any developments which arise from the talks.


Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
