REST DAY WORKING DYNAMIC PAYMENTS – ABELLIO SCOTRAIL

To All Abellio Scotrail Ticket Examiner RMT Members

Our Ref: BR2/9/4

21st October 2021

RMT CALLS FURTHER STRIKE ACTION
AND ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

Dear Colleague

REST DAY WORKING DYNAMIC PAYMENTS – ABELLIO SCOTRAIL

Further to my previous correspondence with regards to the above dispute, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for standing firm during the days of industrial action. Our Scotrail Ticket Examiner members have solidly supported the strike action taken to date in their fight for equality and workplace justice over enhanced payments for rest day working.

Your union’s National Executive Committee has again considered the matter and has taken the decision to call on all our Abellio Scotrail Ticket Examiner members to take further industrial action. Therefore, you and your colleagues are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:

  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 14th November 2021
  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 21st November 2021
  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 28th November 2021
  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 5th December 2021
  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 12th December 2021
  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 19th December 2021
  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 26th December 2021
  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 2nd January 2022
  • 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours on Sunday 9th January 2022

Please note that you have already been advised of the strike action called for Sunday 24th October and Sunday 31st October 2021 which of course remains in place.

Additionally, the instruction to our Abellio Scotrail Ticket Examiner members not to work any Rest Days or undertake any Higher Grade Duties remains in place until further notice.

Important note: the instruction to members not to work any Rest Days or undertake any Higher Grade Duties is suspended during the strike action called over pay & conditions from 00.01 hours on Monday 1st November until 23.59 hours on Friday 12th November 2021, as previously advised to all Scotrail members last week.

I ask you all to show your support and stand shoulder to shoulder during the days of industrial action. We must ensure we do not allow Scotrail to divide the workforce and demand that the company do what is fair and honour an enhanced rate for rest day working for all grades.

I trust this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I will, of course, update you on any further developments.

UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Yours sincerely

Michael Lynch
General Secretary
