TO ALL GREATER ANGLIA CONDUCTORS AND SENIOR CONDUCTORS

Dear colleague,

ROLE OF THE GUARD & EXTENSION OF DOO – GREATER ANGLIA

Firstly, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for returning a phenomenal result in the ballot for industrial action. This result will have sent a clear message to management that we will not sit idly by whilst the company destroy the Safety Critical Role of the Guard.

Your union’s National Executive Committee has now had the opportunity to consider this exceptional result that you and your colleagues returned in favour of taking strike action and action short of a strike and has taken the decision to call on all our Greater Anglia Conductor and Senior Conductor members to take industrial action. Therefore, you and your colleagues are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

•    0001 hours and 2359 hours Tuesday 3rd October 2017

•    0001 hours and 2359 hours on Thursday 5th October 2017

The solidarity and determination in returning this result has been staggering and I urge you to continue to show your strength of feeling to the company and stand shoulder to shoulder with your colleagues on the days of action. Now is the time to back up this exceptional result with a clear display of solidary in our struggle to defend the Safety Critical Role of the Guard.

NO TO DOO!
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE ACTION


Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
