TO ALL RMT DRIVERS, LEADING DRIVER AND CONTROLLER MEMBERS AT TORQUAY AND PAIGNTON
TORBAY ROSTERS – STAGECOACH SOUTH WEST
Negotiations have been going on between your union and Stagecoach South West for far too long now without a decent roster being introduced. Your representatives have worked tirelessly in their efforts to persuade management to have in place a roster which is family friendly, provides a decent work/life balance and provides all members of staff decent rest periods and working arrangements.
It is completely unacceptable that management have failed to resolve this matter and this is now a situation which must be addressed. That is why your National Executive Committee has decided to ballot our Driver, Leading Driver and Controller members for strike action and action short of a strike.
Ballot papers will be sent out on Friday 7th June with a closing date of First Post, Thursday 20th June 2019. I therefore urge you all to give an overwhelming ‘YES’ vote for both strike action and action short of a strike to send management a clear message that we demand immediate action over the current imposed rosters.
If you or any of your colleagues has not received their ballot papers by Thursday 13th June 2019 please contact the Helpline on 0800 376 3706 or the Industrial Relations Department via the switchboard on 0207 374 4771 and a replacement paper will be sent to your first class.

VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION
& ‘YES’ ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE!
