3rd September 2019

Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2019 – Bluestar


Further to previous correspondence, the National Executive Committee (NEC) has considered this matter and taken the decision to SUSPEND THE OVERTIME AND REST DAY WORKING OVER THE CONTRACTED 40 HOURS with immediate effect. All members should therefore work as normal. For clarification purposes, the action that has been suspended is as follows:-

Members are instructed not to work any overtime and not to work on their rest days over the contracted 40 hours for one week commencing from:-

• 00:01 hours on Wednesday 4th September 2019 and 23:59 hours on Tuesday 10th September 2019.

This is because an improved offer has been made and the NEC, acting on the recommendations of your negotiating team, has instructed me to suspend the upcoming industrial action so that you can be canvassed on the offer for your opinion on it.

The Company has been advised accordingly and I will of course keep you advised of any further developments. I wish to thank you once again for your continued support and solidarity.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
