RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2020 – MERSEYRAIL (GENERAL GRADES)
Further to my letter dated 24th August 2020, in which I advised you that pay talks had been postponed by the company. I can advise you that your union has written to Merseyrail demanding that pay negotiations reconvene by early November. Additionally, your union has made it crystal clear to the company that our members will not be paying the price of coronavirus and making up any of the company’s financial losses as a result.
There are many big issues within Merseyrail at this moment in time that are causing anger and frustration amongst our members. Your Representatives, Lead Officer and National Executive Committee all share our members’ frustrations and want to keep all of our options open at this time.
I will of course advise you of any further developments.
