Proposed Contract Changes - Bespoke Facilities Management (Hitachi Rail Contract)

7th December 2020

 

Dear Colleague,

 

Proposed Contract Changes - Bespoke Facilities Management (Hitachi Rail Contract)

 

It has recently been brought to my attention that members are being requested to sign revised contracts of employment by the company.

 

The proposed changes to contracts overall are relatively minor and are a requirement following the recent TUPE transfer of employees in order to appropriately reflect the new employer.  It is, however, the view of RMT that any changes of this nature should first be consulted via the appropriate machinery of negotiation in order to allow for proper scrutiny in this regard.

 

I have now raised this matter directly with the company and can inform you that the contract implementation process has been temporarily suspended to allow for this consultation to take place.

 

I will of course keep you informed of any further developments in relation to this matter.

 

Should you require any further information at all then please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Many Thanks
