DISMISSAL, M. PRINGLE – DB REGIO (TYNE & WEAR METRO)
RMT CALLS INDUSTRIAL ACTION
Further to my letter dated the 15th May 2014 with regards to the above matter, first and foremost let me congratulate all of you for your steadfast determination to defend Brother Pringle who was dismissed from his employment by DB Regio under the Wellbeing Policy.
Your union’s Executive Committee has now had the opportunity to consider the fantastic vote that our members returned in favour of taking strike action and industrial action short of a strike and has taken the decision to call on all our DB Regio members to take industrial action as listed below:
All DB Regio members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:
- 00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Wednesday 28th May 2014
Furthermore, all DB Regio members are instructed to take industrial action short of a strike as outlined below:-
- No overtime working above contracted rostered shift patterns until further notice.
- No Rest Day Working.
- No members to undertake Coaching Roles (this is supplementary to contracts of employment and is undertaken on a voluntary basis).
- No members to undertake LOCO Driving Duties (this is supplementary to contracts of employment and is undertaken on a voluntary basis).
- All members are instructed not to utilise the FASSI reporting system whilst in charge of trains.
Once again, congratulations for standing shoulder to shoulder and I urge you to continue your magnificent support for your union and solidarity with your colleague in this dispute.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT YOUR UNION – SUPPORT THE ACTION
REINSTATE BROTHER PRINGLE
I will, of course, keep you fully advised on any further developments.
Acting General Secretary
