All systems go at Milton Keynes

4 January 2013

Just a few months on from Network Rail’s big move to ‘MK: The Quadrant’, there are now hundreds of TSSA members on the site, with a growing range of activities – from advice sessions to learning opportunities.

Rep Angela Belcher told the Journal, ‘I’ve been working with local rep Steve Smith and TSSA organiser Madeleine Richards to meet staff around the building to discuss their issues. We’ve already had several ‘drop in’ sessions during lunchtimes, where members can come along and air their issues, hear what is going on, or just meet TSSA reps and staff members. There’ll be more coming up, which we’ll be advertising on the general noticeboard at the end of ‘the street’.’

As a direct result of a TSSA Learning initiative, 13 members of staff at Milton Keynes have signed up and are working through both Customer Service and Business Administration NVQs (National Vocational Qualifications). There are further places on a variety of courses now available, which need to be signed-up for by the end of January.

Angela continued, ‘Another of our colleagues at The Quadrant has become TSSA’s first ever equality representative, and has made a great start by running a lunchtime session to discuss with members the independent report into diversity and inclusion at Network Rail. The company is currently reviewing its policy following this report and I know that TSSA at all levels is committed to helping them follow through on the problems raised in the inivestigation.’
