Having considered the matter and noting members’ rejection of the revised pay offer and the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to call further industrial action short of a strike.

Therefore, members are be instructed not to work any overtime over their contracted 40 hours and not to work on their rest days for one week commencing from:-

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

This union will closely monitor this situation and report back to you as soon as there are further developments.
