STRIKE ACTION SUSPENDED – RETURN TO WORK FOR ALL SHIFTS COMMENCING FROM 22.00 HOURS TONIGHT

 

Dear Colleague,

 

 

ROLE OF THE GUARD AND EXTENSION OF DOO – SOUTHERN (GTR)

 

Further to my previous correspondence dated 10th August 2016, in which I advised you that I had contacted southern with a way forward in order to resolve this dispute. Please be advised that I have now received communication from the conciliation service ACAS informing me that the company will now enter into negotiations with our union officials without any preconditions.

 

The National Executive Committee has had time to consider this matter and have acknowledged that some progress is being made. As the company have now agreed to meet with our union officials without the caveat of any preconditions the NEC has therefore instructed me to inform you and your colleagues that the strike action has now been suspended with immediate effect until further notice. You and your colleagues are therefore instructed to return to work for all shifts commencing from 22.00hrs tonight.

 

I would like to congratulate you all on your steadfast and unwavering support for your colleagues during this dispute and the bravery and strength of unity you have shown during this difficult time.

 

I will of course keep you advised of all and any further developments from the talks as they arise

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mick Cash

General Secretary
