Sunday Working Guards – Great Western Railway



Dear Colleague,


Sunday Working Guards – Great Western Railway


I have received a report from our Lead Officer advising that GWR are asking the union for a statement around Guards restructuring and specifically the proposals around Sundays in the working week. They wish to reach a permanent agreement, hopefully for implementation by May 2018. In the mean time they wish to enter into a short term agreement.


The National Executive Committee has considered this request and has instructed me to arrange a meeting with our On-Trains Company Council, SAGS, Lead Officer and NEC members to consider the matter.


I have arranged this meeting for later in the month and will advise you of its outcome in due course.


Yours sincerely,




Mick Cash

General Secretary
