PAY AND CONTRACT MATTERS – EAST MIDLANDS RAILWAY

To All RMT EMR Senior Conductor Members

Our Ref: BR2/10/2

9th February 2021


Dear Colleague

PAY AND CONTRACT MATTERS – EAST MIDLANDS RAILWAY

All East Midlands Railway Senior Conductor members should now have received their ballot paper for the above dispute, from the independent scrutineer Civica. If you have not yet done so, please make sure you return your ballot paper to the scrutineer by the closing date of Tuesday 23rd February 2021.

If you have not received your ballot paper or you know of a colleague who has not received theirs, please email us at info@rmt.org.uk or contact the RMT Helpline on 0800 376 3706 and a replacement ballot paper will be sent out to your home address first class post.

Do not waste your vote. It is imperative that we get a massive return in the ballot for industrial action so we are not prevented from acting on our members’ wishes by the ballot thresholds. Failure to meet these thresholds means industrial action cannot happen so a high turnout is absolutely crucial.

I urge you all to use your vote. Vote 'YES' for strike action and ‘YES’ for action short of a strike to protect our Senior Conductor members terms and conditions of employment and send a clear message to East Midlands Railway that we will not allow them to treat us with contempt.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE – RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION AND ‘YES’ FOR ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

I will, of course, keep you fully advised on any further developments.

Best wishes.

Mick Cash
General Secretary
