PROPOSED REDUNDANCIES, CCTV STAFF, PAISLEY & DUNFERMLINE - SCOTRAIL

Our Ref: BR2/16/3

20th April 2018


Dear Colleague

PROPOSED REDUNDANCIES, CCTV STAFF, PAISLEY & DUNFERMLINE - SCOTRAIL

Further to my letter dated the 3rd April 2018 where I informed you of the results in the ballot for strike action and action short of strike. Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to applaud our members for returning such a magnificent result in the ballot for industrial action.

I can now advise you that your union’s National Executive Committee has considered the matter and having considered the views of your Union Representatives believes it is necessary to take strike action to stop Scotrail reducing the workforce at Paisley and Dunfermline depots. Therefore, your Executive Committee has taken the decision to call on all our Scotrail members at Paisley and Dunfermline to take the following strike action:

Members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

• 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Saturday 5th May 2018
• 06.00 hours on Monday 11th June 2018 and 05.59 hours on Tuesday 12th June 2018

We must stand united in this dispute to protect our members’ jobs, terms & conditions and safety on the railway. Once again, congratulations to our members at Paisley and Dunfermline for your show of strength and solidarity in this dispute.

UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT YOUR UNION – SUPPORT THE ACTION

Best wishes.
