RMT CALLS FURTHER STRIKE ACTION

14 July 2017

INTRODUCTION OF NEW DOO ROUTES – SOUTHERN (GTR)

Our Ref: BR2/0146

14th July 2017

Dear Colleague,

RMT CALLS FURTHER STRIKE ACTION

INTRODUCTION OF NEW DOO ROUTES – SOUTHERN (GTR)

I write in relation to the above matter and further to previous correspondence regarding this dispute and in our defence of the safety critical role of the guard. As you are aware we must do everything possible to ensure a second person is on every train to guarantee safety and assist every passenger, especially those who are most vulnerable.

Therefore, after holding a meeting with your Lead Officer, the NEC has considered this matter again and has instructed you and your colleagues not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

• 0001 hours on Tuesday 1st August 2017 until 2359 hours on Wednesday 2nd August 2017
• 0001 hours and 2359 hours on Friday 4th August 2017

I urge you all to continue your magnificent support for your union that has been so clear throughout this dispute. We must continue to send Southern (GTR) a clear message that we will not allow them to strip the railway of a safety critical second member of staff.

NO TO DOO
SUPPORT THE ACTION
UNITY IS STRENGTH


Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
