Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2019 – Churchill Contract Services (Tyne & Wear Metro)

In line with union policy, a pay claim for a substantial increase in pay and improved terms and conditions has been submitted. The Regional Organiser has met with the company and the following offer has been tabled:-

The hourly rate is increased to £9.30 per hour, effective 1st March 2020
Differential maintained between pay grades, i.e. Supervisors and Drivers
Further meaningful pay discussion to take place in October 2020

In addition to the above, the Regional Organiser and our Representative have been successful in achieving unrestricted free travel on the Tyne and Wear Metro system for our Churchill members.

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.

Yours sincerely


Mick Cash
General Secretary
