INDUSTRIAL ACTION SUSPENDED
WORKING PRACTICE CHANGES – NEW ROLLING STOCK – SERCO CALEDONIAN SLEEPER
Your union’s negotiating team has spent all day today in discussions with management in order to find a way to resolve the current dispute.
I am pleased to advise you that significant progress has been made in these discussions and I am expecting a formal letter from the company outlining the finer details of the tentative agreement which was reached by early next week.
With such progress being made - and I shall of course send you the details when I receive them – your negotiators have recommended that all current industrial action (overtime ban, no rest day working, not to carry out higher grade duty and to work only to your job description) be suspended and this has been endorsed by your National Executive Committee. You are therefore instructed to work normally with immediate effect.
As I say above, I will write to you again next week with full details of the outcome of the discussions. But, in the meantime, I would like to thank you and your colleagues for showing solidarity during this dispute and showing support for your union.
