Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2018 – DHL (Virgin West Coast Contract)
Further to my letter dated 10th January 2019, all members are congratulated for returning a unanimous vote in favour of taking industrial action to demand a decent increase to your rates of pay along with genuine improvements to your working conditions. Having consulted with your RMT Rep and Lead Officer, the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to instruct all members to take strike action by NOT BOOKING ON FOR ANY SHIFTS THAT COMMENCE BETWEEN:-
• 21:59 hours Wednesday 30th January 2019 and 21:58 hours on Friday 1st February 2019.
I urge you all to support the strike to show management you will not be bullied into accepting a derisory and divisive pay offer when you deserve to be properly rewarded for the hard work and commitment you have shown to the Company.
STAND FIRM TOGETHER – SUPPORT THE ACTION
UNITY IS STRENGTH
The Company has been advised that we remain available for further talks and I will keep you advised of all further developments.
