Our Ref: BR1/0001/CAF(WMT)

22nd March 2021

Dear Colleague,

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2021 – CAF RAIL (WEST MIDLANDS TRAINS CONTRACT)

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 this link http://bit.ly/2QtC8ZD

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 Tuesday 30th March 2021 at 11:00

You will shortly receive an email from a company called “Choice Voting” which will allow you to register your vote.
