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

Our Ref: BR2/0146

31st August 2017

Dear Colleague

Reminder – Strike action called Friday and Monday


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

Further to my previous correspondence regrettably there has no further progress in our discussions with GTR Southern so we are left with no alternative but to call members to take further industrial action.  

Therefore all Conductors, Conductor Instructor, On-Board Service (GTR ex Conductor) and Train Driver/Train Driver Instructors are instructed not to book on for any turns of duty that commence between:

•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Friday 1st  September 2017
•    00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Monday 4th  September 2017

The solidarity and determination you have shown throughout this long running and difficult dispute has been exceptional. You are all a credit to the trade union movement and should be very proud of the unity you have shown. I urge you to continue your magnificent stand in defence of the role of the guard and support this action.

SUPPORT YOUR UNION
SUPPORT THE STRIKE ACTION


Best wishes
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
