FGW: Management Grade Christmas and Bank Holiday offer and Elections

5 December 2011

Outcome of referendum on First Great Westerns offer for Christmas & Boxing Day Enhancements and call for Local Representatives elections

 Outcome of Referendum

In my last circular, we advised members of an offer for Management Grade staff in FGW to receive enhanced rates for those who work over Christmas & Boxing Day. TSSA opened up a referendum to members on whether to accept this offer. I’m happy to announce that the referendum results were as follows:

TSSA Management members voting to Accept the offer = 66.7%

TSSA Management members voting to Reject the offer = 33.3%

As a result I wrote to FGW on Friday 2 December to accept the offer, which was the deadline set by the company to enable them to implement the changes in order for those working on Christmas and Boxing Day 2011 to receive the enhanced rates. I’d like to thank the TSSA workplace representatives who have canvassed you for your opinions and worked hard to achieve these improvements on your behalf. Unfortunately many of the local vacancies are still left vacant which means that it is harder for your opinions to be fed through to us when we negotiate on your behalf. We are asking you to consider stepping forward to become a representative in the areas where we have vacant seats as outlined below.

Elections

Below is list of the work areas where we have seats to represent Management grades showing where the current seats are filled and where they are vacant. There are 4 main work areas each with a Divisional councillor who also sits on the Company Council, each Divisional councillor has at least 3 local representatives who sit under them and deal with individual and local issues on behalf of members. If you work in one of the below areas and are interested in standing forward for one of the vacant seats then please either contact the relevant divisional councillor or email Alan Valentine

As most of these vacancies have been vacant for a long period of time we will fill them on first come first served (co-opted) basis until 2012 when there will need to be further elections. This is due to us reaching our third year of Management collective bargaining within FGW and reps having a 3-year term.
