ALL INDUSTRIAL ACTION IS SUSPENDED
RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2018 - MACGREGORS
Further to previous correspondence, I can report that significant progress has been made in talks with MacGregors and an improved offer from the company has been tabled. The union’s National Executive Committee feel that it is now important that RMT consults with you and your colleagues over the details of the company’s revised proposals. To that end the National Executive Committee has instructed me to hold a referendum of you and your colleagues.
Consequently, the union’s National Executive Committee has decided to suspend the industrial action to allow the referendum to take place. Therefore the strike action which was due to start at 00:01 hours on Friday 9th November 2018 and 00:01 hours on Monday 12th November 2018 has been suspended. Additionally, the subsequent overtime ban which was due to start 00:01 hours on Saturday 10th November 2018 has also been suspended.
You are instructed to work as normal between Friday 9th November 2018 and Monday 12th November 2018.
You will receive full details of the company’s revised offer in the coming days, together with the voting material for the referendum. Make sure you have your say.
