TO ALL LNER TRIBUNAL CLAIMANTS

Dear Colleagues

LONDON NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY (FORMERLY VTEC) TRIBUNAL CLAIMS

Further to previous correspondence, many of you are part of our Employment Tribunal Claim against VTEC over their imposition of the pay award in 2017. A hearing date for this Tribunal had been timetabled for July 2019 but our solicitors have just informed us that this has been postponed.

The Kostal case, the result of which may have a significant impact on our own case, has recently been considered by the Court of Appeal but it is unlikely that judgement will be received by July. As a result the company were successful in getting the tribunal to agree a postponement to at some time between September and December 2019 by which time the Kostal judgement should be known.

Our solicitors will be writing to each claimant directly giving an update as to the latest decision. Members will be kept informed of developments.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
