Dear Colleagues

Rates of Pay and Conditions of Service 2019 – Axis Cleaning and Support Services (Transport for Wales Contract)

Further to my letter dated 15th May 2020 in relation to the above matter, I am writing to advise you that ballot papers are being despatched today. Therefore, your ballot paper should hit your doormat early next week. It goes without saying that as soon as you receive your ballot paper you should do everything in your power to make sure it is returned to the independent scrutineer and you should encourage all RMT members in your workplace to use their vote.

Therefore, I am urging you all to vote 'YES' to both questions in the ballot for industrial action. It is vital we receive a huge 'YES' vote so we can continue the fight for pay justice. If the statutory thresholds are not met, then no industrial action can happen – even if members vote overwhelmingly ‘yes’ for strike action and industrial action short of a strike. Therefore, IF YOU DON’T VOTE – IT COUNTS AS A ‘NO’ VOTE. We cannot allow the Axis to win and use the draconian anti-trade union laws to end the pay dispute.

If you do not receive your voting paper from the independent scrutineer, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call the freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706 or e-mail info@rmt.org.uk to request a replacement.

Important Please Note: The Scrutineer for RMT Ballots and Elections is now 'Civica Election Services' and not the 'Electoral Reform Society'. Letters from Civica are not Junk Mail and should be opened.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE
RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER!
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR PAPER MAKE SURE YOU VOTE 'YES' TO BOTH QUESTIONS!

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
