Dear Colleague

ROLE OF THE GUARD & EXTENSION OF DOO – ARRIVA RAIL NORTH
RMT CALLS FURTHER STRIKE ACTION

Further to my previous correspondence, I would like to congratulate you and your ARN colleagues on the steadfast resolve you have shown during the long running dispute on DOO. The action taken to date has been rock solid.

Your union’s National Executive Committee has again considered the matter and believes that in order to defend the safety critical role of the Guard there is no other option but to continue with the industrial action.

Therefore, all ARN Conductor, Conductor Instructor and Train Driver members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

• 00.01 Hours and 23.59 Hours on Thursday 24th May 2018
• 00.01 Hours and 23.59 Hours on Saturday 26th May 2018

The unity and support you have shown throughout this very difficult dispute has been incredible and I urge you all to continue with this fantastic solidarity. We must do everything we can to defend the safety critical role of the Guard.

NO TO DOO
SUPPORT THE ACTION
SUPPORT YOUR COLLEAGUES

Best wishes.
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
