INDUSTRIAL ACTION SUSPENDED
ROLE OF THE GUARD & EXTENSION OF DOO – SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY
Last week your union representatives met with the company under the auspices of conciliation service ACAS. Further correspondence was received from South Western Railway and adequate progress has been made with the company during talks.
The National Executive Committee has considered this matter and after taking the views of our negotiating team believes that the strike action planned for 0001 Hours on Thursday 21st June 2018 until 2359 Hours on Saturday 23rd June 2018 should be suspended. Therefore, you and your colleagues are instructed to work as normal.
We hope that the talks can continue in a constructive manner and an agreement reached. I will write to you all again in due course.
