RMT CALLS FURTHER STRIKE ACTION
RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 – CLARKE CHAPMAN FACILITIES MANAGEMENT
Firstly, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for your continued support and steadfast determination in fighting for pay justice at Clarke Chapman. All of the company’s planned work on the weekend of 27th and 28th July was cancelled because of the previous industrial action. This is an absolutely fantastic outcome and proves what can happen when union members stand together.
Despite this shut down, the company has still not contacted the union to try and resolve this dispute. It is clear that the company are trying to bury their heads in the sand, in hope that the dispute will resolve itself. This is an appalling way to hold negotiations and just shows the clear contempt management has for you and your colleagues.
The National Executive Committee has considered this matter and believes the only way to force the company to get around the table is to take further industrial action. Therefore, you and your colleagues are instructed to take the following strike action:-
· 48 hour strike action commencing at 00:01 hours on Saturday 24th August 2019 until 23:59 hours on Sunday 25th August 2019.
· 48 hour strike action commencing at 00:01 hours on Saturday 31st August 2019 until 23:59 hours on Sunday 1st September 2019.
Additionally, the continuous overtime and rest day working ban remains in force until further notice.
I urge you all to continue with your magnificent support in this dispute. I trust this keeps you fully advised and I will keep you updated on these matters.
