BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, WATERLOO – SOUTH WEST TRAINS
Further to my letter dated 31st March 2016 with regards to the above matter. Please be advised that the matter has been subject to recent consideration by the National Executive Committee and their decision is as follows:-
“That we note the report on file from our Lead Officer.
At the avoidance of dispute meeting held on the 5th April 2016 the company have now given assurances to address all our concerns; however time needs to be given to convey this information to our effected members at Waterloo.
Accordingly we instruct the General Secretary to immediately suspend the ballot while we seek the views member’s and further reports from the Branch Lead Officer.
Waterloo Branch and relevant representatives to be advised.”
Therefore, in-line with the NEC decision the ballot of our affected members at Waterloo will be suspended. I have further received correspondence from our Lead Officer; however, this was received after the NEC decision above was made and will therefore be placed before the NEC at the earliest opportunity. I hope this keeps you fully advised on the matter and I trust you will keep me updated on any further developments.
