Dear Colleague,

 

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

 

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

 

Outside London

 

  • A 3.3% increase taking lowest paid members to £9.30 per hour.

 

London (Including Euston & Wembley)

 

  • A 4.97% increase taking the lowest paid members in London to £9.50 per hour.

 

The matter has been considered by your National Executive Committee (NEC) and it has instructed me to inform the company of our rejection of their offer and that a dispute situation exists between our organisations. Preparations for a ballot will commence shortly.

 

Therefore I would be most grateful if you could ensure that your workplace location, your job description and your contact details are correct by contacting the helpline on 0800 376 3706 or you can email any changes to info@rmt.org.uk

 

I will keep you advised of further developments in this matter.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mick Cash

General Secretary
