DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE - MAKE SURE YOU VOTE!
RE-BALLOT CLOSES ON THURSDAY 6TH SEPTEMBER 2018
ROLE OF THE GUARD AND EXTENSION OF DOO – SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY
Your union needs you all to return a magnificent ‘Yes’ vote, as you did in the previous ballots. As you know, the company are doing everything possible to try and ensure we do not meet the ridiculous thresholds required. Do not let them win, we cannot allow them to use these draconian laws to stop negotiations and allow them to destroy the Safety Critical Role of the Guard.
Rather than getting around the table and resolving the dispute, management has spent most of their time handing out sweets to passengers at stations. I am sure you and your colleagues, and passengers, alike, would much rather the company put as much effort into resolving this dispute and guaranteeing a Guard as they are at trying to sweeten the public.
By now, you should have received your ballot paper for the above ballot. If you have not done so yet please make sure you return it to reach the Scrutineer by the closing date of Thursday 6th September 2018.
If you have not received your ballot paper, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call us on 0800 376 3706 or 0207 387 4771 IMMEDIATELY and ask for the Industrial Relations Department or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, so a replacement can be sent out immediately. It is imperative that we get a massive return in the ballot.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR VOTE - RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER
