Role of the Guard and Extension of DOO – Southern GTR

To all Southern GTR Conductors

IMPORTANT - PLEASE RESPOND - IMPORTANT

Role of the Guard and Extension of DOO – Southern GTR

With reference to the above, from the 1st January 2017 some of you will migrate to the new OBS Role despite advising management it is not your wish to do so. As you know you and your colleagues are fighting these enforced changes to your role. If after the 1st January further industrial action is called then the letter we have to send management, by law, will need to include the new grade. Therefore, I would ask you to check your details as requested below.

The anti-trade union laws make it difficult enough to take action but it is twice as difficult when circumstances change in the middle of a dispute. It is imperative, therefore, that we have your correct details and most importantly you let the union know if you are remaining in the Conductor Grade or migrating to the OBS Grade. Therefore, I would ask you to provide the information requested below and email it to rmtmail@rmt.org.uk

You will also receive a letter to your home address with a tear-off slip and freepost envelope, you can phone the Freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706, the RMT switchboard on 020 7387 4771 and ask for the membership department or if registered you can make the necessary changes on the RMT website at http://www.rmt.org.uk/home/
 
Thank you for your assistance.

Best wishes

Mick Cash
General Secretary
