Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2020 – Scotrail
Negotiations have taken place with the company to discuss the matter of your pay rise. Unfortunately the latest talks have proved to be fruitless and your union has been advised that the extension of Emergency Measures Agreements until January 2021 implies that you will not receive a pay rise in 2020.
Your National Executive Committee (NEC) has considered the matter further and it has declared that a dispute situation now exists between our organisations
Necessary preparations for a ballot for industrial action are being made and I urge members to ensure that their contact and employment details are current and accurate. This may be done via the website's e-services accessible from www.rmt.org.uk or by calling the Helpline on 0800 376 3706 or by e-mailing email@example.com Or you can speak to your local RMT rep or RMT Regional Office.
Once the record checks have been completed, ballot papers will be posted to your home address.
OUR INDEPENDENT SCRUTINEER IS CIVICA. THIS IS NOT JUNK MAIL, IT WILL CONTAIN YOUR BALLOT PAPER
I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I will, of course, keep you informed on any further developments.
