REDUCTION IN TICKET OFFICE HOURS – ARRIVA RAIL LONDON

Our Ref: BR2/15/4

13th December 2019

TO ALL ARRIVA RAIL LONDON MEMBERS

Dear Colleague,

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE
VOTE YES FOR STRIKE ACTION & ACTION SHORT OF STRIKE

REDUCTION IN TICKET OFFICE HOURS – ARRIVA RAIL LONDON

The closing date for the ballot is Thursday 19th December 2019 – so if you haven't done so already – now is the time to vote. Due to new balloting laws I cannot stress enough how important it is that you complete your ballot paper and return it as quickly as possible.

We must take a stand against these cuts which will have terrible consequences for safety, service and passenger accessibility across the network. Be in no doubt that these cuts will not just affect ticket office staff. It will also have a significant knock on effect on the workload of other staff, especially front line workers who inevitably have to bear the brunt of customer complaints regarding tickets and advice when they cannot access a ticket office.

I urge all ARL members to vote overwhelmingly in favour of action to send a clear message to the company that their cuts are totally unacceptable and must be reversed. We cannot see any justification for their plans which appear to be only to save money at a time when they have literally doubled their profits in the last year!

If you have not received your ballot paper, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call us on 0800 376 3706 or 0207 387 4771 and ask for the Industrial Relations Department or e-mail info@rmt.org.uk as soon as possible. It is imperative that we get a massive return in the ballot.

I urge you not to waste your vote and to vote 'YES' for strike action and 'YES' for industrial action short of a strike.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE - RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION &
‘YES’ FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
