RESTRUCTURING OF PLAINLINE RENEWALS CONTRACTS – CARILLION

Our Ref: BR4/15/4

11th September 2017

Dear Colleague

RESTRUCTURING OF PLAINLINE RENEWALS CONTRACTS – CARILLION

By now you will have received your voting paper to your home address for this ballot. Please make sure you that you use your vote and return the ballot paper as quickly as possible. We have to make sure that we are not prevented from acting on members’ wishes by the anti-trade union laws and that is why every member must return their voting paper.
 
Your union is running this ballot as it is seems the only way to make management sit up and take notice of our members’ concerns. It was made clear to Carillion that, should they not implement an arrangement for LNE staff similar to that for LNW staff, then a ballot of all Plainline members would take place and this is where we stand now.

With the recent Trade Union Act making the Anti-Trade union laws even worse, it has never been harder to conduct a lawful ballot. New thresholds for turnouts mean a big vote is essential so I strongly urge all to vote Yes for Strike Action and Yes for Action short of a strike!

Please return your voting paper by no later than Thursday 14th September 2017.


Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
