RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 – GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY (STATION GRADES, HEATHROW EXPRESS CONTRACT)
Pay negotiations have concluded and the following offer has tabled by the company:-
• 2.5% increase in basic pay rates applicable from 1st January 2019
• The inclusion of GWR HEX Station Grades within the wider company pay award negotiations going forward.
The above offer is line with the pay award made to Great Western Railway members as part of the wider multi-year pay agreement (February 2019 RPI).
After careful consideration, the union’s National Executive Committee has instructed me to inform the company of our acceptance of the offer. This instruction has been carried out and I have requested that the increase and any back monies are paid at the earliest opportunity.
