Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2018 – Unipart Rail Crewe
Despite our best efforts the company are refusing to meet with RMT, even under the auspices of ACAS. A meeting at Unity House has been held between our representatives and the NEC to try and seek a way forward.
At the conclusion of the meeting Your Union’s National Executive Committee convened and it has taken the decision that the following must be carried out:-
• Terminate the dispute on 2018 pay
• Request a meeting with the company under the Unipart Collective Bargaining machinery to discuss industrial relations, election of representatives and other matters of mutual interest.
• Conduct organisational and recruitment activity at the Crewe-York and Doncaster bargaining units.
• Coordinate our pay claims and negotiations between those two bargaining units for the 2019 pay round.
I will keep you advised of further developments.
