Dear Colleague

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2021-BALFOUR BEATTY RAIL PLANT

I am writing to provide you with an update report concerning the latest developments in relation to the above-mentioned matter. You will of course be aware that the most recent offer from the company was emphatically rejected following the conclusion of a referendum ballot of RMT members.

A further meeting was held with the company on 26th July 2021 where it was envisaged that an improved offer would be made to resolve this long outstanding issue. Unfortunately, I must inform you that no progress was made at the meeting with Balfour Beatty unwilling to consider any increase to the offer already rejected by the membership.

This update will no doubt be disappointing to all parties, however, please be assured that RMT is determined to achieve the best possible pay award for our members. The RMT negotiating team remains available for talks at any stage in order to achieve this objective.

I will now be reporting this position to the RMT National Executive Committee who will consider any further steps in this regard. I will of course keep you informed of any further development in these negotiations.

Should you require any further information at all then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many Thanks

Steven Skelly
