Dear Colleagues

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2017 – MITIE (EUROSTAR)

RMT TO BALLOT ALL MITIE MEMBERS ON EUROSTAR CONTRACT

As you may be aware the negotiations for an increase in your pay have been a long and drawn out process. At the conclusion of recent talks, Mitie tabled an offer of a 2.5% pay rise which would be spread over two payments. The union’s negotiating team are of the opinion that that this offer does not represent a significant improvement to your pay and as such should be rejected.

The matter has been considered by your union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) and it decided that we are now in dispute with Mitie. I have been instructed to hold a ballot for industrial action of you and your colleagues to force Mitie back to negotiations so they can table an improved offer which would represent a significant financial increase to your pay and genuine enhancements to your terms and conditions.

We are in the process of preparing the ballot which requires us to make sure all the workplaces and job titles of our members are as accurate as possible. I would be grateful if you could ensure your records are up to date as soon as possible so that we can get the ballot up and running. This can be done by contacting the union’s helpline on 0800 376 3706 or by emailing info@rmt.org.uk

I trust this keeps you fully advised and I will inform you of any further developments on this issue when they arise.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
