Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2017 - Arriva Traincare

FURTHER STRIKE ACTION CALLED

Firstly, may I congratulate you on your magnificent stance during the last strike action despite the Company’s best efforts to browbeat you into not taking lawful industrial action.

I had hoped that once Management had seen that you and your colleagues were serious about your fight for better pay and conditions that they would return to the negotiating table for fresh talks to resolve this dispute. Unfortunately this has not been the case and they have imposed the stingy pay deal negotiated by another union!

Your National Executive Committee (NEC) has considered the matter again and it has instructed that members take the following TWO SEPARATE DAYS of strike action:-

MEMBERS ARE NOT TO BOOK ON FOR ANY TURNS OF DUTY BETWEEN:

•    00:01 and 23:59 hours on Friday 16th June 2017

•    00:01 and 23:59 hours on Friday 30th June 2017

Stand together with your colleagues on the picket line in a demonstration of workplace solidarity and show these management bullies that you will not play their petty games and you will not allow them to force to accept an inferior pay offer.

SUPPORT YOUR UNION – SUPPORT THE STRIKE ACTION


Yours sincerely

 

Mick Cash
General Secretary
