Therefore, our members are instructed to take the following action:-
All Waterloo Interserve members are instructed not to book on for any duties that commence between the hours of 14.59 on Monday 17th November and 14.58 on Tuesday 18th November 2014.
All Waterloo Interserve members are instructed not to book on for any duties that commence between the hours of 14.59 on Friday 21st November and 14.58 on Saturday 22nd November 2014.
