RMT CALLS STRIKE ACTION
PAY & CONTRACT MATTERS – EAST MIDLANDS TRAINS
Further to my letter dated the 2nd July 2019 with regards to the above dispute, first and foremost I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for returning such a superb result in the ballot for industrial action. Our Senior Conductor members have sent a clear message to EMT that management’s failure to bring a meaningful resolution to our members concerns over the Pay and Contract issues is totally unacceptable.
Your union’s National Executive Committee has considered the matter and having listened to the views of our Senior Union Representatives, believes that the only way to get management to seriously address these concerns is to take 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 20th July 2019
•00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Saturday 27th July 2019
•00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Saturday 3rd August 2019
I urge you all to stand united and support the days of action. We must not allow management to continue their total disregard for you and your colleagues.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE ACTION
SUPPORT YOUR UNION
