Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2019 – Leadec (West Coast Trains Contract)

28th November 2019


Dear Colleagues,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2019 – Leadec (West Coast Trains Contract)

DISPUTE OVER

STRIKE ACTION CALLED OFF - WORK AS NORMAL

Negotiations have been held and at the conclusion of these talks, the following offer has been tabled:-

• Hourly paid staff outside London 4.44% increase taking their rate from £9:00 to £9.40 per hour
• Hourly paid staff inside London 5.0% increase taking their rate from £9.05 to £9.50 per hour.
• The offers are for all hourly paid staff, including Team Leaders and Supervisors.

The National Executive Committee has considered the offer and it has instructed me to inform the company of our acceptance and that the dispute is over. Therefore the strike action that was due to commence at 00:01 on 29th November 2019 and conclude at 23:59 on 30th November 2019 has been called off and you are instructed to work as normal.

Make no mistake, without your determination to stand together and fight for a decent pay increase, the offer would not have been made and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you and your colleagues on your steadfast solidarity.

The company has been informed and I have requested that the increase and the back monies are paid at the earliest

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
