PAY, CONDITIONS & CONTRACTS – ON TRAIN TECHNICIANS – NETWORK RAIL
Further to previous correspondence, you and your colleagues are to be congratulated for the overwhelming ballot result supporting Strike Action and Industrial Action Short of a Strike.
Your union has continued to press Network Rail to deliver a fair and just pay and grading package for you and your colleagues. However, up to now, the proposals put forward by management continue to fall way short of what your union class as “fair and just”. Your union is fighting for a package which addresses the salary differentials and also provides for a common allowance.
The National Executive Committee has considered the situation and believes that there is no other option but to call industrial action. Therefore all members employed as On Train Technicians for Network Rail are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between: -
• 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Monday 26th February 2018. Furthermore members are instructed not to work any overtime or rest day working for any shifts commencing between:-
• 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Sunday 25th February 2018.
I urge you all to continue your magnificent support for your union in order to gain the package that you deserve.
SUPPORT THE ACTION
UNITY IS STRENGTH
