WORKING CONDITIONS – EUROSTAR
STRIKE ACTION REMAINS ON SATURDAY 28TH JULY 2018
I write with regards to the above matter and to inform you that your Senior Union Representatives have attended an Avoidance of Disputes meeting with Eurostar management in the hope of finding a meaningful resolution to this dispute. During discussions with management, the company tabled a proposal to avoid you and your colleagues taking industrial action on Saturday 28th July 2018.
Having looked at the company’s proposals, it is the view of your Union Representatives that management has once again failed to provide any tangible proposals or immediate improvements that would satisfy our member’s aspirations. Therefore, your union’s National Executive Committee has considered the matter and taken the decision to continue with the strike action from 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Saturday 28th July 2018.
These issues are serious and the only way to get management to treat them with the urgency they require is by supporting the industrial action. I urge you and your colleagues to stand shoulder to shoulder on Saturday 28th July to make sure Eurostar implement an immediate plan to eradicate the unsafe and volatile working conditions our members are subjected to on a daily basis and stop these problems from reoccurring.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT THE ACTION
