To: All RMT On Train Technician members
INDUSTRIAL ACTION SUSPENDED
PAY, CONDITIONS & CONTRACTS – ON TRAIN TECHNICIANS – NETWORK RAIL MAINTENANCE
Following further negotiations between your union and Network Rail with regards to the ongoing demands for pay and conditions justice for you and your colleagues, a revised offer has been received from the company this morning.
The improvements made to the previous offer are such that your National Executive Committee has instructed me to suspend the industrial action which was due to take place on Sunday 25th February and Monday 26th February 2018. You should therefore work as normal on both dates.
The offer will now be sent out to you in the near future in order that you and your colleagues can take an informed opinion on whether it is acceptable and resolves this dispute.
To make clear, your union is still in dispute with Network Rail, but the action has been suspended in order our members can have their views known.
I will therefore write to you in the very near future with full details of the offer and provide you with a chance to vote on the package.
Thank you for supporting your union during this dispute.
