RMT CALLS INDUSTRIAL ACTION AT CHURCHILL

Our Ref: BR1/0001/CCS(TWM)
8th January 2021


Dear Colleagues

Rates of Pay and Conditions of Service 2020 – Churchill Contract Services (Tyne & Wear Metro Contract)

I am writing further to members voting overwhelmingly for industrial action in the pay ballot. You and your colleagues have demonstrated that you will not stand idle in the face of attacks on pay and conditions at Churchill Contract Services. Noting the result, the union’s National Executive Committee has instructed that the following continuous industrial action takes place:-

With effect from 00:01 hours on Friday 22nd January 2021, until further notice, members are instructed:-

· No rest day working
· A ban on working overtime
· Not to use company issued mobile phones

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 deserve a decent pay rise. 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 INDUSTRIAL ACTION
UNITY IS STRENGTH

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
