Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2017 – Virgin Trains West Coast

Referring to my previous correspondence dated 3rd October 2017, I write to you again to advise you of the further developments in this matter. You will recall that I informed you that the pay offer from the Company had been rejected by your union and that a dispute situation now exists between RMT and Virgin Trains West Coast.

The record updates are almost complete and ballot papers will be sent out very shortly.  There is a series of Special Branch Meetings taking place up and down the line at the following places and dates and I strongly urge you to attend one of these meetings:-

Preston:                               28th October 2017
Liverpool:                            29th October 2017
London:                               3rd November 2017
Wolverhampton:             6th November 2017
Glasgow:                             12th November 2017

Additionally, your negotiators have agreed to have a last chance meeting on 31st October under the Avoidance of Disputes/Disputes Resolution procedures to try and resolve this dispute.

I will keep you fully updated on all future progress made.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
