RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 – ATALIAN SERVEST (CALEDONIAN SLEEPER CONTRACT)
At the conclusion of negotiations with your union, the company has tabled the following offer:-
· The immediate up lift of all Atalian Servest staff employed on the Serco Caledonian Sleeper contract to the same rates awarded to their colleagues on the remainder of the Alstom contract –this will be implement this immediately and as of the next pay run, being the 09th April, all Atalian Servest staff on the Caledonian Sleeper contract will be on revised hourly rates paid for the period of the 01st March – 31st March.
· The calculated back pay for the differential between the rates for all hours worked from when Atalian Servest took over the contract on the 30th September 2019 until the 29th February 2020
· This is where the company may need some help – In order to calculate this, it will need to total amount of hours each staff member on the Serco Caledonian Sleeper contract has worked from 01st April 2019 – 29th September 2019. It is attempting to get this information from the previous company in order to establish the pay for each operative. This last piece is in some ways out of the company’s control and it is looking to obtain this information as quickly as possible in order to complete this.
The National Executive Committee has considered the offer and it has instructed me to inform the company of our acceptance of the offer. This instruction has been carried out and I have requested that the increase is paid at the earliest opportunity.
