BALLOT FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION OPENS TODAY
PLEASE RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER WHEN YOU RECEIVE IT
REST DAY WORKING DYNAMIC PAYMENTS – ABELLIO SCOTRAIL
Further to my letter dated the 3rd February 2021 with regards to the above dispute, I can now advise you that the ballot for industrial action opens today and will close on Thursday 11th March 2021.
The ballot for industrial action will be for strike action, in which members will be instructed not to work Sundays and for action short of a strike, in which members will be instructed not to work any rest days or undertake higher grade duties.
If you have not received your ballot paper by Wednesday 24th February 2021 please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the RMT Helpline on 0800 376 3706 and a replacement ballot paper will be sent out to your home address first class post.
The RMT believes that all grades should receive the same enhanced payments pro rata for working rest days and finds the actions of the company totally unacceptable. Please make sure you return your ballot paper when you receive it by no later than Thursday 11th March 2021.
I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I will, of course, update you on any further developments.
