Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2017 – Wettons
(Southeastern Railways Contract)
Referring to our previous correspondence, I write again to update you on the latest developments with the matter of your pay. You will recall that the strike action was suspended, pending an improved offer from the Company. At the time of the suspension of the strike action, the Company informed us that there could be a further improvement to the offer because they had a meeting scheduled with Southeastern where they would be asking for extra funding.
Currently, we are waiting for full clarification of the improved deal as there were anomalies in management’s offer. Once we receive this, the offer will considered by the National Executive Committee (NEC) and further updates will be communicated to you and your colleagues.
Please may I remind you that we are still in dispute with Wettons and our ballot for industrial action is still live and we have the option of calling industrial action should the need arise.
I will keep you advised of any further progress in this matter.
