Dear Colleague,

 

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2020 – Hitachi

 

48 HOUR STRIKE ACTION TO TAKE PLACE

 

Referring to my previous correspondence, I write to advise you that further talks have taken place but they have proved to be fruitless. The company is still pushing the same pay deal that has previously rejected by your union and it has offered nothing to address the outstanding anomalies between depots and grades.

 

Acting on the request of your RMT Lead Officer and your local representatives, your National Executive Committee (NEC) has instructed that the following strike action is to take place:-

 

BOUNDS GREEN, CRAIGENTINNY & DONCASTER MEMBERS

 

  • Not to book on for any shifts commencing from 05:59 hours on Sunday 18th October 2020 until 05:58 hours on Tuesday 20th October 2020

 

LONDON NORTH POLE MEMBERS

 

  • Not to book on for any shifts commencing from 20:00 hours on Monday 19th October 2020 until 19:59 on Wednesday 21st October 2020

 

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 and that all members at all depots should all be treated fairly with the same terms and conditions. The company seem to think that they can get away with riding rough shod over you and your colleagues; it is now 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 ACTION

UNITY IS STRENGTH

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mick Cash

General Secretary
