Dear colleague

TRANSFER OF MOBILE MAINTENANCE TRAIN CONTRACT FROM COLAS RAIL TO HARSCO RAIL

You may have received a notification from Colas Rail indicating that Network Rail has awarded the Mobile Maintenance Train contract to Harsco Rail, which would result in those currently carrying out this work to be TUPE transferred. Information I have received suggests that this contract transfer will take effect from 1st April 2020.

I can advise you that the initial consultation meeting involving both Colas and Harsco with your union will take place next Wednesday 4th March 2020. Your union will be aiming to ensure that your terms and conditions and all working arrangements remain unaffected by this transfer and that the process will run its course with little impact upon you and your colleagues on this contract.

Should you have any concerns or queries with regards to this transfer, then please do not hesitate to contact the RMT South West and South Wales Regional Office, which is administering this matter. The office can be contacted on 0117 925 5018 or email g.barton@rmt.org.uk.

I will keep you advised of any further developments in this matter in due course.


Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
