Further to my previous letter dated 14th February 2018, I write to advise you that mass meetings have been organised in Bournemouth, Wimbledon and Woking next week to discuss the current dispute. Full details of these meetings can be found by following this link. http://bit.ly/2CR5EMe
In attendance will be National and Regional Officials of the union and I urge you to attend the one nearest to you where an update will be given on latest developments and we build towards another solid yes vote in the re-ballot. I would be grateful if you could make sure your colleagues are fully aware of when these meetings are taking place and encourage as many to attend as possible.
As regards the appalling step taken by SWR to make substantial deductions from your pay for taking part in the recent industrial action, I can advise you that we have sought advice on this issue and we will write to each member with full details in the very near future.
ATTEND YOUR LOCAL MEETING
MAKE SURE YOUR VOICE IS HEARD
