RATE OF PAY, WORKS TRAIN CONTROLLERS – VGC (CROSSRAIL PROJECT)

TO ALL RMT WORKS TRAIN CONTROLLER MEMBERS ON VGC CROSSRAIL

Our Ref: LUL/10/2

21st November 2017

Dear Colleagues,

RATE OF PAY, WORKS TRAIN CONTROLLERS – VGC (CROSSRAIL PROJECT)

As you will be aware, a collective grievance was recently submitted to the Company over your rate of pay which we found is only approximately half that of other grades. However despite discussions with management, the Company has so far refused to correct this position. You and your colleagues have quite rightly had enough and are congratulated for your determination to fight for fairness and stand up to this blatant inequality.

It is unacceptable that this situation has not been sorted out much earlier and the Union’s National Executive Committee has taken the decision to declare a dispute situation with the Company and to ballot you and your colleagues for strike action over this issue.

Ballot papers will be posted to you and your colleagues on Tuesday 28th November 2017 and the closing date for the ballot is Tuesday 12th December 2017. Please vote as soon as you receive your ballot paper and return it in the freepost envelope provided.

If you do not receive your voting paper, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call the freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706, RMT Head Office on 0207 387 4771 or e-mail info@rmt.org.uk to request a replacement.

MAKE SURE YOU USE YOUR VOTE
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION

I will keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
