Special Meeting-RMT in dispute with SWT-Olympics Payment
To advise all that Bob Crow (RMT General Secretary) will be in attendance to address the Meeting on Tuesday 03rd July 2012 Start at 18-30pm, venue is below.
Bob will be addressing the Meeting in relation to South West Trains moving outside the 2011 Pay Agreement by trying to implement special rosters and declining leave during the Olympic period after committing to say as part of the agreement that it would be business as usual and normal Arrangements will apply for all SWT Staff.
The RMT have served notice of ballot to South West Trains, and the ballot will open on Thursday 06th July 2012, and will be sent to all members home addresses.
We have had reports that Managers are going around speaking to members of staff asking them how they are going to vote, this is a private and secure ballot and members should not be put under pressure by SWT. the RMT negotiators are available at an time to meet South West Trains management to discuss this issue with them, but their response at a meeting a few weeks ago was that there is no more money, and stated to us “Go and have your Ballot, and then said that they will do everything they can to stop it.
We would urge all members to Vote Yes for Industrial Action and Action short of Strike…..
Come along to this important meeting and hear your National Officers address the Meeting and to give you a current update on this Dispute, and will give you the opportunity to ask questions.
