Dear Colleagues

RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2018
ROYAL FLEET AUXILIARY

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE
VOTE YES FOR STRIKE ACTION & ACTION SHORT OF STRIKE
RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER BY THURSDAY 14th NOVEMBER 2019

Members should now have received their ballot paper. If you have not done so yet, please make sure you return it, to reach the Scrutineer by the closing date of Thursday 14th November 2019.

I have written to the Commodore requesting an update on his meeting with the Cabinet Office. Hopefully, I will receive a response soon and your Representatives will then meet to discuss the situation. The matter will then be considered by your National Executive Committee following this meeting.

Whilst we have built public sympathy and ascertained political support it is evident that those with responsibility for the purse strings have failed to recognise the role of RMT members and reward you accordingly.

It is imperative that we get a massive return in the re-ballot for industrial action so we are not prevented from acting on members’ wishes by not meeting the legal thresholds. I urge you not to waste your vote and to vote ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION AND ‘YES’ FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE to keep up the fight for pay justice.

If you have not received your ballot paper, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call us on 0800 376 3706 or 0207 387 4771 and ask for the Industrial Relations Department or e-mail info@rmt.org.uk as soon as possible. It is imperative that we get a massive return in the ballot.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE - RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION AND
‘YES’ FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I will, of course, keep you informed on any further developments.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
