Dear Colleagues

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2018 – OCA

Further to previous correspondence, the referendum has now concluded and the result is as follows:-

Question: Do you accept the offer?

VOTING ‘YES’ 40.6%
VOTING ‘NO’ 59.4%

Consequently, I have advised the OCA employers that the RMT has rejected the proposed pay offer and a dispute situation now exists between our organisations. Preparations for a ballot for industrial action are now underway and the union remains available for meaningful talks to resolve this matter.

In order to prepare for an industrial action ballot, it is vital that your details are up to date. These details are your job title, your workplace and your contact details. Please report any changes to the RMT Helpline on 0800 376 3706 or alternatively, you can email info@rmt.org.uk

I will keep you fully updated as new information arises.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
