Rates of Pay and Conditions of Service 2019 – Freightliner Ltd (including Railports)
Arising from the 2019 pay settlement, your union was due to meet with Freightliner to review the Railports terms and conditions. However, due to the closure of the Bristol Railports site, this meeting was indefinitely postponed. As an alternative to the review and in order to progress this matter, Freightliner has written to me proposing the following one-off versatility and retention allowance for Doncaster Railport employees:-
- £2500 paid in December 2019 and subject to PAYE deductions to acknowledge local efficiencies around shunting and the local labour market challenges.
The company has also reiterated its commitment to review the Railports terms and conditions in the first quarter of 2020.
Having consulted with your Representatives, the union’s National Executive Committee has instructed me to inform the company of our acceptance of this allowance. This instruction has now been carried out.
