Rates of Pay and Conditions of Service – Network Rail
Our Ref BR6/0001
24th March 2015
PAY OFFER REJECTED!
RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2015 – NETWORK RAIL
The referendum of Network Rail members on the Network Rail pay proposals has now concluded and the result is as follows:
“Are you prepared to accept the company’s offer?”
Votes Cast 8434
Yes 534 (6.3%)
No 7896 (93.7%)
As a result of this clear and overwhelming decision from our membership, we have advised the Network Rail we are in dispute and have sought further meetings with them to address the present unacceptable offer. They have been advised that unless an improved offer is tabled before 2nd April 2015, we will commence a ballot of all members for strike action and industrial action short of a strike.
I shall keep members fully informed of developments.
It is vitally important to ensure the union has up to date membership records.
