ROLE OF THE GUARD & INTRODUCTION OF DOO – MERSEYRAIL
As you are aware, the union has been in extensive negotiations and talks with Merseyrail over the Role of the Guard. The discussions at ACAS have taken place and I can now advise you that the final documents following talks have been received.
You can find a copy of the proposals here http://bit.ly/2O2LABA
The National Executive Committee has considered this matter and has asked for you and your colleagues to share your views and to provide feedback on the proposals. Your local representatives, company council and Lead Officer will be meeting with the NEC and myself to discuss the proposals and any concerns you or your colleagues have and this meeting will take place on Thursday 24th July 2019. I ask that you contact your local rep as soon as possible and before 24th July 2019, in order that your opinions and thoughts can be discussed during the meeting.
I trust this keeps you fully advised and I will update you on any further developments when they arise.
