REDUNDANCIES DUE TO PROPOSED RELOCATION OF FINANCE SHARE SERVICES CENTRE (FSSC) & PROCUREMENT CENTRES – FREIGHTLINER
All affected Freightliner members should now have received their ballot paper for the above dispute. If you have not yet done so please make sure you return your ballot paper to the Scrutineer by the closing date of Thursday 29th November 2018.
If you have not received your ballot paper please contact the RMT Helpline on 0800 376 3706 or 0207 387 4771 and ask for the Industrial Relations Department as soon as possible. It is imperative that we get a massive return in the ballot for industrial action so we are not prevented from acting on members’ wishes by the new ballot thresholds.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE – RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION AND ’YES’ FOR ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE
In addition to the above, I would like to notify you that on Page 2 of the ballot paper there is a typographical error. You may have noticed where it stipulates the periods within each type of industrial action expected to take place, reads May 2018. It should state from November 2018 to May 2019.
I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I will, of course, update you on any further developments.
