Rates of Pay and Conditions of Service 2018 - Leadec
Further to my letter dated 27th November 2018, I have received clarification from our lawyers in regard to our position over your pay increase for 2018.
To briefly summarise, our legal team have stated that they believe we have a case to go to Employment Tribunals on the grounds that the company have failed to pay you in accordance with the 2018 ‘Leadec Final Revised Pay Offer’.
Your National Executive Committee (NEC) has considered the advice and it has instructed me to write to you and your colleagues to advise you to urgently lodge an ET. This can be done by completing an L2 form which can be obtained from your local RMT Regional Office, where the staff will assist you in completing this form. Please complete the L2 and return it to your Regional Office. Please also include a copy of the relevant pay slips where your wages have not been paid correctly.
Our legal representatives will be submitting a multiple ACAS Early Conciliation application on your behalf, subject to receiving your completed L2. Therefore please do not submit your own individual ACAS Early Conciliation application and advise the legal representatives in your L2 (with accompanying documentary evidence) if you have already done so.
Despite it being likely that ACAS will advise that an individual grievance should be submitted, I can assure you that this is not the case. If advised to do so please state that this is part of a multiple claim. There is no requirement to lodge a grievance.
RMT L2 Form – Application for Legal Assistance
Once you have obtained an L2 form from your Regional Office or online please complete this and return it to the same regional office as soon as possible. You do not need to go into a great deal of detail as we have the requisite information, although we will need your relevant pay slips. Please state that the claim relates to ‘Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2018 – Leadec’.
You can contact your Regional Office by calling one of the following numbers:-
London & South East – 020 7529 8860 or 020 7529 8853
Midlands – 0121 212 2355
North Wales and North West – 0151 263 3912
Scotland – 0141 332 1117
Date of Commencement of Claim
As the unlawful deduction appears to be ongoing whilst you remain in Leadec’s employment in your role, the time limit of 3 months less a day to lodge a claim with ACAS would be ongoing.
Closing Date for Claims
In an attempt to expedite this matter for you please ensure that the completed L2 forms are received by 31st January 2019.
Because of data protection issues and the requirement to have individual’s authority every member who wishes to be included in the claim must submit an L2.
Please give this matter your immediate attention if you wish to be included in the claim.
