FREE TRAVEL FOR ALL STAFF
Further to my Circular No IR/709/13 dated the 5th December 2013 in which I advised you that the General Grades Committeehad instructed me to write to all the Train Operating Companies requesting talks to discuss the issue of concessionary travel facilities. I can now advise you that I have received a response from the following TOCs:
Additionally, I am in the process of arranging a meeting with our sister unions in support of our campaign for full privilege travel concessions for all staff and I am seeking legal advice on thefeasibility of a national ballot across all of our membership on the principle of free travel for all. I will, of course, keep you fully advised on any further developments.
Acting General Secretary
