Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2017 – Stagecoach South West
(Exeter, Torquay & Barnstaple)

As you are probably aware, pay negotiations have been on-going for some length of time and they have concluded with the Company making an offer that does not meet our aspirations. Your union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) has considered the matter in conjunction with a branch resolution requesting a ballot for industrial action and it has instructed me to ballot you and your colleagues.

The Company has been informed that we are in a dispute situation and that notices will be served in line with the current legislation.

I cannot stress how important it is that you use your vote in this ballot. Due to the new draconian anti-trade union laws, thresholds have to be met before the ballot can be validated. In a nutshell, we have to have more than a 50% turnout and more than 40% of the turnout voting ‘YES’ for strike action and action short of a strike. Without meeting these thresholds, the ballot will be declared invalid.

Additionally, if there have been any changes to your job, your workplace location or your home address and contact details, please get in touch with us by contacting the national helpline on 0800 376 3706 or you can email info@rmt.org.uk

SUPPORT YOUR UNION
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE


Yours sincerely
 

Mick Cash
General Secretary
