Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2019 – Leadec (West Coast Trains Contract)
Due to circumstances beyond our control it has become necessary to re-ballot you and your colleagues over the matter of your pay. The union’s National Executive Committee has again considered the matter and has instructed me to hold another ballot for industrial action of you and your colleagues to force the Leadec back to negotiations so they can table an improved offer which would represent a significant financial increase to your pay and genuine enhancements to your terms and conditions.
In line with this instruction, on Thursday 31st October 2019 the independent scrutineer will send a ballot paper to your home address and the ballot will close on Tuesday 12th November 2019. I urge you to complete and return your ballot paper in the freepost envelope provided as soon as you receive it. You will be asked to vote for both strike action and industrial action short of a strike – I urge you to vote ‘YES’ to both.
IT IS VITAL THAT YOU USE THE FREEPOST ENVELOPE (ADDRESSED TO THE ELECTORAL REFORM SERVICES) THAT WILL BE ENCLOSED WITH YOUR BALLOT PAPER SO THAT YOUR VOTE WILL GO TO THE CORRECT ADDRESS. IF YOU DO NOT USE THIS ENVELOPE, YOUR VOTE WILL NOT BE COUNTED.
If you do not receive your voting paper, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call the freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706, RMT Head Office on 0207 387 4771 or e-mail email@example.com to request a replacement.
