Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2019 – Wabtec Faiveley UK (Rail Doncaster)

INDUSTRIAL ACTION CALLED FOR
AT WABTEC FAIVELEY UK (RAIL DONCASTER)

Following the magnificent result of the ballot where you handed your union a mandate for action, the National Executive Committee (NEC) has considered this matter and it has decided that we must take action to send Wabtec a clear message that their current stance on pay is totally unacceptable.

You are instructed to take the following strike action by not to booking on for any shifts that commence between:-

• 06:00 hours on Wednesday 4th September 2019 and 05:59 on Wednesday 11th September 2019

• 06:00 hours on Monday 16th September 2019 and 05:59 on Monday 23rd September 2019

Additionally you are instructed to take the following industrial action short of a strike in the form of an overtime ban:-

• 06:00 hours on Wednesday 11th September 2019 until 05:59 on Monday 16th September 2019

• 06:00 on Monday 23rd September 2019 until further notice

You and your colleagues have already demonstrated a clear sense of solidarity and unity. Now is the time to back this result up with a solid display of industrial action. I urge all members to stand firm together and support this action. Your union believes that you should be adequately rewarded for all your hard work. The company believes that they can pay their workers a pittance and get away with it. It is time to prove them wrong.

The company are aware that as always, RMT remains available for talks and is ready to enter into negotiations in order resolve the current dispute.

STAND FIRM TOGETHER – SUPPORT THE STRIKE
UNITY IS STRENGTH

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
