RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2021 – CAF RAIL (TRANSPENNINE EXPRESS)
In line with Union Policy, a pay submission for an increase in pay and improved terms and conditions has been submitted. The Regional organiser has met with the company and an offer has been tabled which can be found on our website by clicking on these links https://bit.ly/31tmsaZ https://bit.ly/3u1LZnU
After long and careful consideration, your union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) had instructed me to hold a referendum so you and your colleagues so that you can have your say on the pay offer. I can now report that in order to get a quick turnaround and bearing in mind the current coronavirus situation, we are running this referendum electronically. Having considered the views of your negotiating team the NEC is recommending that you vote ‘YES’ to accept the deal.
The on-line referendum will close on Thursday 8th April 2021 at 11:00
You will shortly receive an email from a company called “Choice Voting” which will allow you to register your vote. Please follow the instructions and make sure you complete this by no later than 11:00 on Thursday 8th April 2021. Once you have voted, you will receive an email from Choice Voting confirming how you have voted and that your vote has been cast successfully.
If you know any of your colleagues who has not received this email, or if you have any difficulties voting please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or the RMT Helpline on 0800 376 3706
