The union has had several meetings with the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) since we suspended our strike action on the 14 train operators, following a proposal made to us on March 22nd.
These meetings were to further discuss the issues of the dispute - in particular Year 2 of the proposal that led to the suspension of strikes and the process of workforce reform.
However, no new document has been produced by the employer.
Members are rightly frustrated by this, and the Tory government is once again absent when it comes to giving the RDG the mandate to produce a new document.
The RDG have agreed to write to us in due course and we will be meeting them next week.
While negotiations continue, we remain in dispute and resolute in our determination to win a further mandate for strike action in the upcoming re-ballot.
Be in no doubt, if further strikes are needed, RMT will not hesitate to act to ensure a negotiated settlement on jobs, pay and working conditions.
Notes: Re-ballot papers for a further 6-month strike mandate go out today with a closing date of May 4.
