NORTHERN RAIL - RMT CALLS FURTHER STRIKE ACTION
Our Ref: BR2/15/4
7th January 2016
REORGANISATION OF CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPARTMENT – NORTHERN RAIL
RMT CALLS FURTHER STRIKE ACTION
First and foremost, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our affected members for the on-going determination and resolve you have displayed in the face of Northern Rail’s contempt and unwilling position to have meaningful negotiations with your union to seek a resolution to this dispute.
I now write to inform you that your union’s National Executive Committee has again considered the matter and taken the decision to call further industrial action. Therefore, you are instructed not to book on for any turns of duty that commence between:
• 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Friday 15th January 2016
The action you have taken so far in this dispute has been a magnificent show of strength and solidarity. You and your colleagues have made it clear to management that you are not willing to roll over and actively participate in a one way race to the bottom or allow these issues to be swept under the carpet.
Once again, thank you for supporting your union throughout this dispute and standing by each other in your fight for justice at work.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT YOUR UNION – SUPPORT THE ACTION
