TO ALL RMT CONDUCTORS & SENIOR CONDUCTORS AT GREATER ANGLIA


Dear Colleague

ROLE OF THE GUARD & EXTENSION OF DOO – GREATER ANGLIA

Further to my previous correspondence, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you all again for standing united on the days of industrial action. Regrettably, despite your union’s best efforts, management persist with their plans to extend Driver Only Operation.

The matter has been considered by the union’s National Executive Committee who remains absolutely committed in defending the vital role of the Guard and to stop the spread of DOO. Therefore, the Executive Committee has taken the decision to call further industrial action as follows:

All Greater Anglia Conductor and Senior Conductors are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:

•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Wednesday 27th December 2017

I urge you and your colleagues to continue the magnificent stance against Greater Anglia’s disgraceful attack on the role of the guard and the company’s plans to extend Driver Only Operation, by supporting the industrial action.

SUPPORT THE STRIKE - SAY NO TO DOO
UNITY IS STRENGTH


Best wishes.
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
