STRIKE ACTION DUE TO COMMENCE AT 00.01 FRIDAY 10TH JULY IS SUSPENDED - ALL MEMBERS INSTRUCTED TO WORK NORMALLY
Following further discussions this afternoon, and the Scottish Government agreeing to delay the publication of the Draft Invitation to Tender until 31st July 2015, RMT has agreed to suspend the current industrial action planned for Friday 10th July affecting CHFS and Argyll ferries services
This suspension is to allow detailed discussions with all parties regarding the modest demands made by RMT around no compulsory redundancies, staffing levels, protection of terms & conditions and pensions.
A timetable has been agreed for these discussions which must be concluded by 24th July 2015.
All members are instructed to work normally on Friday 10th July 2015.
I will write to you again shortly.
