STRIKE ACTION SUSPENDED


Dear colleague

ROLE OF THE GUARD & EXTENSION OF DOO – SOUTHERN (GTR)

I have received an invitation from Transport Secretary Chris Grayling to meet to discuss ways of resolving the ongoing dispute with Southern over the Role of the Guard and Extension of DOO, subject to your union suspending the planned strike action.

The matter has been discussed by your National Executive Committee today and has decided to suspend the strike action by our Guards members scheduled to take place on 1st August 2017 to allow for the meeting with Chris Grayling to take place. A report on the progress made at these talks is to be placed back before the NEC by 1st August.

I will of course keep all members updated on any developments which arise from the talks.


Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
