SKILLED MAINTAINER REGRADE 4 TO 7 – NEXUS (TYNE & WEAR METRO)
First and foremost, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for returning a magnificent result in the re ballot for industrial action. Our Skilled Maintainer Electrical/Mechanical Grade 4 members who were entitled to vote in the ballot returned over 96% of Yes votes in favour of taking industrial action.
I can now advise you that your union’s National Executive Committee has considered this matter and has instructed you and your colleagues to take the following industrial action:
• To work to and abide by the criterion of your original Job Description commencing from 00.01 hours on Thursday 21st March 2019 until further notice.
For your ease of reference I have enclosed a copy of the Skilled Maintainer Job Description and I would remind all our affected members to work solely to the content of your job specification.
Your determination in pursuing the issue of a fair re-grade for Skilled Maintainers has been phenomenal and I urge you and your colleagues to stand united and support the forthcoming industrial action. The only way to get management to reward your expertise and skill is by taking industrial action.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE INDUSTRIAL ACTION
SUPPORT YOUR UNION
