TRAIN PREPARATION PAYMENTS, TRANSPLANT MAINTENANCE STAFF
LONDON UNDERGROUND (ex-AP JNP)
Further to previous correspondence regarding this dispute, you and your colleagues are commended for the solidarity and support you have shown during the industrial action to date and the ongoing overtime and rest day working ban.
Due to recent changes to balloting legislation in the 2016 Trade Union Act, the current mandate for action will expire on Wednesday 6th June. As this dispute remains unresolved the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to conduct a re-ballot and ballot papers will be posted to you and your colleagues on Thursday 24th May 2018 and the closing date for the ballot is Tuesday 5th June 2018. Please vote as soon as you receive your ballot paper and return it in the freepost envelope provided.
NOTE: Advanced Train Maintainer (Train Maintenance), Team Leader (Train Maintenance) and Duty Maintenance Manager members at Ruislip (Transplant) Depot are also affected by the Pay Parity ballot. You have received separate correspondence about this as well and will receive two separate ballot papers. Please make sure you vote YES in BOTH BALLOTS.
If you do not receive your voting paper, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call the freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706, RMT Head Office on 0207 387 4771 to ask for the Industrial Relations Department or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request a replacement.
MAKE SURE YOU USE YOUR VOTE
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION &
‘YES’ FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE
I will keep you advised of all further developments.
