RMT CALLS ADDITIONAL STRIKE ACTION
PAY & CONTRACT MATTERS – EAST MIDLANDS TRAINS
Further to my previous correspondence with regards to the above dispute, I would like to thank you and your colleagues for standing united and solidly supporting the two days of strike action taken on the 20th and 27th July 2019. Our Senior Conductor members have certainly sent a clear message to management to start taking our concerns seriously and bring a meaningful resolution to this dispute.
Having consulted with your Senior Union Representatives and noting their request for another day of strike action, I can now advise you that the union’s National Executive Committee has considered the matter and taken the decision to call further industrial action. Therefore, you and your colleagues are instructed to take strike action as outlined below:
Members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:
• 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Saturday 17th August 2019
Please note that the strike action due to take place from 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Saturday 3rd August 2019 remains in place.
I urge you all to stand united and continue your support on the days of action in order to get management to listen to our concerns over Sunday Working, Wage Discrimination and Pink Days.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE ACTION - SUPPORT YOUR UNION
