Dear Colleague

REMINDER – DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE

SKILLED MAINTAINER RE-GRADE 4 TO 7 – NEXUS (TYNE & WEAR METRO)

Further to my previous correspondence with regards to the above dispute, as you are aware the Union has taken the decision to re ballot all our Skilled Maintainer, Electrical/Mechanical Grade 4 members on the Nexus Tyne & Wear Metro for industrial action. Voting papers were sent out to your home address on Thursday 23rd January 2020.

If you or any of your colleagues have not received your ballot paper by Thursday 30th January 2020 please contact the RMT Helpline on 0800 376 3706 and request a replacement voting paper. Alternatively, you may wish to contact RMT Head Office Reception on 0207 387 4771 and ask for the Industrial Relations Department. A ballot paper will be sent out to you First Class post. Please note the ballot closes on Thursday 6th February 2020.

I urge you to keep up the magnificent support for your Union and vote ‘YES’ to both questions in the forthcoming re ballot. It is imperative that we once again get a massive return in the ballot for industrial action so we are not prevented from acting on your wishes due to the anti-trade union laws. Do not waste your vote.

It has never been more vital for a big turnout in this re ballot so I urge you all to vote overwhelmingly in favour of industrial action.

SUPPORT YOUR UNION - RETURN YOUR VOTING PAPER
VOTE ‘YES’ TO BOTH QUESTIONS IN THE
BALLOT FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Best wishes.

Mick Cash
General Secretary
