TRAIN CREW RESTRUCTURING AGREEMENT - NEXUS
First and foremost, I would like to congratulate you and your colleagues for the solidarity you have shown through this dispute. Following the extremely successful industrial action short of a strike, your Regional Organiser has reported back that management has started to impose punitive measures against you and your colleagues, such as declining lieu days and that this situation has quite rightly, incensed our members.
Therefore, your union’s National Executive Committee has again considered the matter and believes that we now have no other option than to intensify the industrial action and has instructed you and your colleagues to take the following strike action by not booking on for any shifts that commence between :
- • 01.01 hours on Friday 20th December 2019 until 01.00 hours on Sunday 22nd December 2019
Note : The industrial action short of a strike to undertake an overtime ban/rest day working ban and all train crew coaches to cease the voluntary role of coach/mentor pertaining to train drivers, to include both in and out of passenger service as well as class room activities/duties, is suspended for the duration of the strike but will commence again immediately afterwards from 01.01 hours on Sunday 22nd December 2019 until further notice.
I urge you and your colleagues to stand united and support the forthcoming industrial action to get management to seriously consider the proposals put forward by your Union Representatives.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE INDUSTRIAL ACTION
SUPPORT YOUR UNION
